Q: What did you learn from your coaching experience within the club ranks that you’ll plan to bring to Long Beach State?

A: I have loved Long Beach so far, everyone I have met has been so welcoming and wonderful. The staff, specifically, Brian and Erika have been amazing and I already feel extremely comfortable around them.
