Question: Who has provided the most influence on your life personally and professionally? Also, why did you choose to coach basketball at the college level?

Coach B: Louise O’Neal, my college coach at Central Connecticut, definitely made a huge impact on my life professionally. She was the coach that I initially emulated and patterned my own style after. As far as my personal life, my mom taught me how to work hard and be independent. My parents have always been my biggest supporters and have obviously been huge influences in my life. As far as coaching and my decision to become a coach, well, you know what they say, "Those that can no longer play, coach!"
