Amy was raised in NE Iowa where she started playing volleyball when she was 10 years old. It was in Waverly where Amy played Right Side Hitter for Coach Eavon Woodin, who just received her 1,000th win! After High school, Amy decided to become a nurse and due to the heavy course load, the college requested students to be devoted to course work over athletics. Amy was then able to start coaching freshman volleyball at Waverly under her former coach and also play club volleyball at the University of Northern Iowa, where she was attending to get her General Education courses. After college, due Amy's work schedule, she was unable to continue coaching High School Volleyball, but that lead her to start coaching Club Volleyball for 16U for her Alma mater. In 2010, Amy made the move to Des Moines, where she continued to play. In 2014, a position opened up for a Freshman Head Coach at Waukee, and Amy remained there for 3 years. During her time at Waukee, Amy was able to coach Club Volleyball for the Waukee program until she decided to be a traveling nurse in 2016. Then in 2017, a new opportunity arose in Urbandale, where Amy took the position as Junior Varsity Head Coach. Amy has been with PowerPlex since 2017. Other interests include playing volleyball herself, spending time with family and friends, and being outdoors!
