Natalie played collegiate Women's Volleyball at St. Ambrose University for all four years, two of those year's under Nick Lynch as her head coach. Natalie played on both pins in college as an outside and opposite hitter.
Natalie has also coached club ball with Hornet Juniors Volleyball Club in Darien, IL where she worked with 12-14u aged athletes. Her experience in working with other coaches to develop practice plans in combination with her collegiate playing experience makes Natalie a terrific Iowa Select addition and we can’t wait for her to work with our athletes!
Natalie on joining the Iowa Select Family: “ I am very excited to be able to help out such a growing club and even more excited to return to the game of volleyball after a year away! I played volleyball competitively for ten years, four of those being at Hinsdale South High School and another four at the collegiate level at St. Ambrose University. I played club volleyball at First Alliance and New Wave, playing on the 18s team as a sophomore in high school where we qualified for nationals (New Wave). I recently graduated in May with a Bachelor's Degree in Science majoring in Human Performance and Fitness and a minoring in Spanish. I'm continuing my education this year to get a Master's in the Kinesiology Graduate Program at St. Ambrose. I think with our knowledge of the game and Nick's previous years of coaching experience, we'll have a lot to offer to a great team. I'm happy to be able to help the girls out with their recruiting process by educating them more about the game both on and off the court, as well as furthering the players' skill development. I have a really good feeling this will be a great season -Go Select!"
