'I was definitely in the right place, at the right time, when I got placed with the US sitting volleyball team. I met the head coach of the team in 2007 having just completed my bachelors degree in statistics,
I had just completed my work as a graduate assistant with the South Dakota State University Volleyball team and my skills happened to be a good fit as a second assistant / statistician for the program, so I went for it!
My advice for anyone teaching this sport, would be to firstly have fun with it. Currently, we are all stewards and students of this developing sport. We work to develop new theories to make it more competitive but ultimately it is meant to be enjoyable for all.'
