“Kaitlyn aka “Beans” to most of her teammates has been playing volleyball for the past 12 years where she transitioned from being a RS and MH to an OH/DS. Kaitlyn attended and played at Battlefield High School where she helped the team achieve their first District Championship title in the Cedar Run Conference of 2015. After graduating high school, she attended Christopher Newport University to continue playing for the Women’s Club Volleyball team. As a freshman at CNU she retained a starting position and eventually became the club Vice President as a junior, later becoming the President during her senior year. During her time as VP and president of a student-run club, she took over “behind-the-scenes” as well as the coaching responsibilities during practices and tournaments. As a smaller competitor school, she led the team to several first and second place positions at tournaments held against GMU, UVA, W&M, VCU, and ODU.
Kaitlyn graduated from CNU with a degree in Economics and went on to get her master’s degree in Financial Analysis. She is now working to become a Financial Advisor.
This will be Kaitlyn’s first season coaching with VAVA and she looks forward to getting to know each of the players and to help them grow as a player and individual, on and off the court.”
