good person and coach. got along with well, cared about me outside of practice. enjoyed her sense of humor. workouts were challenging. team culture we joined as freshmen was rough, prolly from covid and coaching change. could tell she tried to make it better, took a lot of time.

She was my coach through a coaching change, covid, the death of a teammate, and a shooting on campus. She was understanding and compassionate in all those situations towards our team and staff, to an extreme. I think people sometimes took advantage of her being a nice person then lost their s**t when she set a boundary. I grew tremendously as an athlete and person because of her, I have nothing but the utmost respect and gratitude for working with her. I felt like she cared about the team and was knowledgeable but never really had the opportunity to coach a normal team due to constant tragedy and crisis management. The biggest issue I had with her was she hired staff who continuously undermined her, created a lot of division that was unnecessary. She should’ve fired most of the staff on numerous occasions - Austin, Kaitlin, Ronnie, Veronika, Farrah, Egan, Maddie - were HORRIBLE staff members. Outright bad at their jobs, seemed like she was constantly doing everyone’s work. It seemed like certain staff members were constantly working against her and trying to get the team to join them. She also kept people on the roster that didn’t belong, you can’t do the workouts but keep complaining? Just stop. The haters are those she was too kind to, they would’ve never been happy and they aren’t happy now either. They just wanted the attention they got from complaining. To say she didn’t care about you or respect you is a lie, there were no investigations or incidents, you’re being petty and posting lies. She deserved better than how many people treated her.

MSU made a huge mistake hiring her. Abusive, manipulative, and a liar. Wasn’t even trusted to be with athletes alone by the time she was fired.
