Megan grew up in Abilene, Texas. Though she started as a soccer player at a very young age, once middle school athletics started, she quickly found her love for volleyball, basketball, and track. As high school progressed, Megan’s true passion for volleyball blossomed. This passion continued into college where Megan played for Hardin-Simmons University. She was a 4-year starter as a right-side hitter, a 3-year team captain, and helped lead her team to many school records including the school’s first ever Conference Championship in volleyball! She graduated from HSU with a degree in Secondary English Education.
After college, Megan began her teaching and coaching career at Coppell Middle School East as the head 7th grade volleyball coach and English teacher. After 3 years at East, Megan moved to Coppell High School as the head freshman volleyball coach. During her first year at CHS, the Coppell Cowgirls won the 6A State Volleyball Championship for the first time in school history. At the end of that historic season, Megan found out she was expecting her first child, so she made the decision to go back to CMS East. She coached another year, took 2 years from coaching, had another baby, then returned to coaching for another 2 years before deciding to “retire” in 2017 to stay home with her two kids. Megan has also coached numerous seasons with TVA over the past 9 years.
Fun Facts: Megan lives in Coppell with her husband, Jason, and two kids, Jay (5) and Natalie (2). Her husband used to be a coach at Coppell Middle School West, so they were a “house divided” for several years. The most incredible experience Megan has had as an athlete was when she traveled to Moldova with Athletes in Action on a volleyball mission trip. That trip still impacts the way Megan coaches today!
