While growing up in Indiana, I spent hours in the gym working to improve and ultimately perfect my shot. All of the hard work has rewarded me with an amazing journey from being named Indiana's Miss Basketball & a High School All-American to playing in the NCAA Final Four for the Penn State Lady Lions.
With my amateur career concluding in 2002, I began working with young people through one-on-one lessons and camps/clinics. In December 2008, Dream Makers Basketball was formed and day camps were introduced to targeted communities.
I currently live in New Palestine, IN work with my husband, Aaron, daughter, Kayla, and son, Braeden. As well, I am a Assistant Varsity Girls Basketball Coach at North Central High School-Indianapolis (2012 Class 4A State Champions). I am also the Co-Founder of S&S Elite Sports, a multi-sports training facility located in Whiteland, IN.
Basketball has taken me on an amazing journey and provided many wonderful experiences and opportunities. Through Dream Makers, I hope to help other young athletes achieve their goals and create opportunity for them, through the game of basketball.
