Softball Pitching

Goodness, I have been playing softball ever since I could remember! With my mother being a pitcher at Western Michigan, she taught me to pitch from a very young age. I ended up playing all the way through college! I played at University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire as a pitcher. Since I was a sophomore in high school, I have been teaching pitching lessons to children ages 10 - 18. This helped when the university would help out with hosting camps for girls of all ages to come learn about softball, and specifically for me, pitching. I decided to stay in Eau Claire after college and since then I have continued teaching pitching lessons while also being the new UW-Eau Claire pitching coach. While pitching is my specialty, I know the game like the back of my hand. Believe it or not, I also was an outfielder! (I played outfield for 2 innings in college, it counts! :P) I hope to help my team grow as a player as well as an individual. Let’s play hard and win lots! Looking forward to a great season(s)! :D
