About

I have been married to my loving wife Jennifer Felker since August 3rd, 2007. She has been patient in allowing me to follow my passion of coaching, which has moved us around the country several times. We currently have 2 cats named Hazel and Grizzly and a dog named Nikki. Jen and I enjoy spending time outside hiking, biking, and driving our 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia Camper to interesting places throughout the USA. 


I still actively play indoor, grass, and beach volleyball whenever I have the opportunity. I have been attending USA Volleyball Adult Nationals since it's 100th year anniversary in Holyoke, Massachusetts in 1995. It's a great yearly reunion to see people I have played volleyball with in every location around the country we have lived. 

 

Currently, I am in the process of obtaining my Doctorate of Education in Kinesiology Online ( EdD in Kin Online) from the University of North Carolina - Greensboro. The program continues to challenge me to think critically about my coaching and discover better ways to teach my student-athletes.
