Hi there, I’m Coach Megan, but most people call me coach Meg!
I grew up on the east coast of Canada in Newfoundland in a town called Mount Pearl. Although I participated in many team sports growing up, I began my volleyball journey at the age of 13 and immediately fell in love with it. I had the privilege of playing with the University of Windsor Lancer’s Women’s volleyball team for four years, where I received a bachelor’s in Human Kinetics and a minor in psychology. I will soon be finishing my master’s degree from Western University and then will begin my PhD at Windsor where I will be studying group dynamics and leadership in sport.
I have been coaching volleyball for as long as I can remember. From camps, to Team Newfoundland provincial volleyball, there wasn’t a summer that I wasn’t in the gym trying to increase my volleyball knowledge. I recently was an assistant coach for the Lancers in 2021/22, which coincided with my first head coaching experience with the Bandits that will be unforgettable. It is so rewarding to see the hard work of athletes pay off both on and off the court, and I am really looking forward to creating new memories as a coach.
Outside of volleyball I can hardly sit still. I enjoy being outdoors running, hiking, rowing, and playing spikeball with my friends. But on a rainy day you can catch me curled up with a book (when I have time to read) or watching the office on repeat. As a coach, I am very passionate about developing confidence in athletes both on and off of the volleyball court. I am very competitive but love to incorporate fun into every practice. I look forward to learning from each athlete improving my knowledge as a coach in the upcoming season.
