        Natasha is entering her very first coaching season with 403 Selects. She previously coached for 3 years for a club in Lethbridge, Alberta. She has recently moved to Calgary to pursue her career as a Dental Assistant.
        Originally from Vulcan, she played high school volleyball as a libero. Also many years of club she started out as a setter and then developed a love for the libero position, sticking to this for many years until the end of her volleyball career.
        Natasha believes athletes should pursue excellence both on, and off the court. She ranks attitude as the most important asset of a volleyball player, followed by creating a positive environment in both teamwork and leadership. Natasha is excited to start this new chapter in Calgary and be apart of the 403 Selects club so she can share her passion and love for the game of volleyball with many athletes.
