My main objective is the get the very best out of our team members and myself each and every day. For success to occur, my players have to trust me and each other, and I need to trust them.

BIO: Our teams have accomplished 19 conference championships, 29 winning seasons, 9 junior college state titles, and a 123 game conference winning streak that lasted almost 11 years. I am a representative of the Executive Board of the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association, a Hall of Fame committee member for the WBCA, and the chairperson of the Miss Basketball award to the best player in the state. I am an Associate Professor of Health and Exercise Science at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee at Waukesha. Since 1990 I have also been the girls track coach at Franklin High School, where in the past 9 years we have won 7 conference championships (and 9 overall). Coach of the year awards have been received for basketball in 1993, 1994, 1995, 2000, 2002, 2005, 2007, 2012, 2014 and 2016.

PLAY EXPERIENCE: 3 years at Tomahawk High School

COACHING EXPERIENCE: This is my 35th year as a head coach. I have been at Wausau Newman (1986-1989) UW-Waukesha (1990-2015), and Kettle Moraine (2015-2018). I have also coached a semiprofessional team for one year in 1989-1990 that competed against colleges such as Marquette, Northwestern, Bradley, Loyola, Chicago State, Illinois State, and Butler.



SOURCE OF INSPIRATION (person, quote, event, etc.):

It is not the critic who counts, not the man (or woman) who points out how the strong man (or woman) stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man (or woman) who is actually in the arena: whose face is marred by dust and sweat: who strives valiantly: who errs and comes short again and again-who knows the great enthusiasms: the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause: who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement: and who at the worst, if he (or she) fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his (or her) place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory, nor defeat- Theodore Roosevelt


It is going to be a lot of fun teaching our philosophy, and watch how others play against us.
