My #IHPromise – to provide the best athletic experience possible for our student-athletes and to be a servant leader to our students, our coaches, and to our community.

Spending time with our students – those interactions make up the very best moments of my day. From the courts to the fields, nothing excites me more than to see our student-athletes thrive. That is a win!

Within the Indian Hill School District Athletic Department, it is our intention to create the best experience possible for our student-athletes. Each student-athlete comes to us with a dream; it is our goal to help turn that dream into reality.

It is a great honor to be a Brave and to lead the Indian Hill Athletic Department. Leadership at Indian Hill is centered on service. Being of service to our students; beings of service to our coaches; being of service to our community – that is what it means to me to be Brave.
