Wisconsin Blaze Volleyball Coach

Sports Training Coach

Susie is a volleyball coach for Wisconsin Blaze. A native of Oconomowoc, WI, she attended Lawrence University in Appleton, WI and earned her degree in Clarinet Performance, General and Instrumental Music Education.

For over 15 years, Susie has been a volleyball coach at the middle school level. She coached the 7th grade volleyball team at Hortonville/Greenville Middle School for 15 years and just finished her first year coaching the 8th grade volleyball team.

Since 2000, Susie has been the Band Director at Greenville Middle School. She lives in Greenville with her husband Chad, daughter Aimee and son Daniel. They have a rotating mix of pets – currently hermit crabs, a gerbil, a chameleon and their dog, Rory.

In her own words, “I am a teacher first and foremost. It is my job to not only build a strong foundation for volleyball, but of life skills to help them succeed outside of the sport as well. My philosophy is to be honest and positive so they will treat their teammates with the same respect.”   

We are so happy to have Susie coaching our Blaze volleyball teams!
