Connie joins the NCJLA team after five years with the Diablo Scorpions as their girls’ program director. She brings a wealth of experience to the position. She coached for the Scorpions for the past six years. She also assisted two travel lacrosse clubs. She has spent the last decade immersed in girls’ sports as a parent, coach and administrator, and has coached at least 200 girls in lacrosse, basketball and soccer.
Connie is also a part-time Research Data Manager at the Cancer Prevention Institute of California in Fremont. As such she is very detail oriented and loves “mining the data,” which will come in quite handy to gain insight into the NCJLA’s player base. She grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin where she played every season of sports in high school and played D3 basketball and ran track at Ripon College.
