"I've been to nine different bases but what has been most memorable was my time coaching basketball. I played until I got hurt then I picked up coaching. I started coaching the men's basketball team in 2009. I was the first female African American coach at Spangdahlem. They always doubted that I could coach a men's basketball team but every time we went to a tournament we won. The first year we got to Moody I coached my son's team but I had to quit because I was worried I was being too aggressive and competitive."
