WAVE welcomed Julia to the coaching staff in 2023! Julia, a WAVE Alum, played collegiately at Fairfield University! Following college, she played on a semi professional indoor team in Spain while she was teaching English as a foreign language.
She believes there will always be teaching, learning, and growing moments for both athletes and coaches. Sports build athletes' character, confidence, ability to work with others, and give them a sense of purpose and accomplishment when competing. "My role is to challenge our athletes to be 1% better each day while supporting them 100% through their journey."
In her free time she likes to do yoga, hike, read, travel, and play beach volleyball.
