Adult Chairperson

Chairpersons and Staff


Mikala has been a player and a coach across various regions throughout her early career. As a native of western Massachusetts, she played varsity volleyball at Miss Hall’s School and was a part of numerous NERVA club teams. She then went on to attend Bard College in the Hudson Valley Region of New York, where she was a starter and captain. Throughout her collegiate career she began to coach a broad age range of club teams with New York Elite, where she fell in love with coaching. Afterwards, Mikala went on to coach at both the high school and collegiate levels, at Kent School a private high school in Connecticut, and at her alma mater Bard College. Throughout this time, she continued to be an avid adult player, regularly participating in both indoor and outdoor leagues and tournaments. 

Now, Mikala lives in the Adirondacks and is excited to get more involved with adult volleyball in the region. Moving from an area where opportunities for adults to play were plentiful, she hopes to help revitalize interest in and participation with adult volleyball in the region. She is always open to new ideas, and looks forward to building a community of engaged adult players of all ages, who are excited to interact with the opportunities Excelsior Empire can provide.
