I have been involved in sports as long as I can remember. When I watched my nephew play lacrosse for the first time 15 years ago for Lake Tapps, I knew we soon would have lacrosse players in our house. My two boys both started playing lacrosse for the Puyallup Panthers, transitioning to Rogers Rams, and I am glad to say we will finish as Puyallup Vikings. In the beginning, I was a spectator on the sidelines, volunteering for the team when needed and asking as many questions as I could to learn the game of lacrosse. I have spent the last few seasons as Team Parent and the 2018 season as the Director of Operations for RLC. I have worked in education for 8 years and have coached at the middle school level for 4 years. I have experience being on the boards of PTA’s and HOA’s and volunteering for Booster organizations. Working with the Board of Puyallup Vikings Lacrosse Club as the Vice President, to ensure that our Youth and High School players have an opportunity to compete at a high level and for an organization that is respected, is something I am excited to be a part of. I am confident that our season is going to be great and the future of the club outstanding. Go Viks!
I joined the lacrosse family 4 years ago with my son participating in the Lil' Rams program with RLC. We had never seen lacrosse played before and instantly fell in love, with the game and the lacrosse family. Since then I have sat on the RLC in 2018 as the treasurer and made the move with the Viking Family when the clubs split in 2019. Prior to that, I sat on the board as the Treasurer for 2 other non-profit organizations. This club and lacrosse family is an amazing group of families that I am lucky to be a part of. I love watching the club, and the boys grow both as players and people. Go Vikings!
My family and I have been involved with the sport of lacrosse for over 10 years now. Our friend’s son convinced both of our boys to play back in 2009 and the rest is history. Through the years, the people we have met have become like family to us. I’m excited to be a part of the Viking’s Lacrosse Club board of directors and help in any way to ensure the growth of the club and the sport.
In my professional life, I own and run a used clothing export company. We buy used clothing from nonprofits and export the goods to third world countries. Between raising our family, running the business and volunteering with lacrosse, life is busy but very good!

Fellow Viking alum here. I graduated from PHS in 2001. I have 2 boys in the Vikings Lacrosse Club. My oldest, who is 11, will be entering his 3rd year playing Lacrosse. My youngest, who is 6, will be going into his first year with the club. We were instantly drawn to this fast pace sport after my oldest son participated in a clinic put on by the club. I loved how involved everyone works together to grow this organization, which lead me to join the board.
