She coached at Satellite High for four years, two years as the junior varsity coach and two years as the varsity coach. She then moved onto Rockledge High for two years as the varsity coach. During that 10-year window, Jennifer has coached at differing clubs within Brevard County, including VolleyTech Academy, Apogee, Starlings, aMax-Q.
