I coached women’s NCAA Division I soccer at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) for 21 years, including 18 years as a head coach. Over the course of my career, I graduated every student-athlete who exhausted their eligibility, compiled an overall record of 211-127-27 and was named both WAC Conference, and Central Regional Coach of the Year. In 2018 I was listed as the 40th winningest NCAA Division I women’s coach. I had 15 consecutive winning seasons in a row as a head coach. In 2005 the UTEP team defeated the Texas Longhorns to advance to the second round of the NCAA tournament, concluding the season with a 20-4-1 record. I am one of only five coaches in UTEP athletic department history to have won more than 200 games, and my winning percentage of 60 percent is second only to Hall of Fame basketball coach Don Haskins. I also have a Masters of Business Administration from Texas A&M University.

Why are you excited about Rise SC? I can use my vast experience of over 20 years in collegiate soccer to help the girls in the Rise Soccer Club achieve their collegiate goals. The Rise Soccer Club has the most licensed coaching staff in Houston, incredible facilities, and phenomenal resources. I am super excited to help the Rise Soccer Club girls program grow, and I am very excited and blessed for this incredible opportunity.
