I’m 6’3” (if we were standing next to each other, you’d be wondering). After playing elite level volleyball for about 12 years, donning USA on my back for 7 of those years, I admit to letting out a giddy squeal whenever I get to pepper—or set, even against the wall… or a pole is fine. Anywhere, really. Playing volleyball brings me joy! Teaching volleyball gives that play more purpose. And the game itself, I believe wholeheartedly, is a microcosm of life where both the player and the teacher form habits, identity, and values. What is trained in the gym will be reflected in life.
That is why Serve with Heart is both literal, in its application to this wonderful sport that we love (i.e. Don't just serve, do so with intention), and it is also representative of a life lived with purpose, offering ourselves to one another wholeheartedly.
“I’ve never seen a leader that cared so much about other people, and to this day she still inspires me. Tracy (Stalls) Insalaco is a beautiful writer, very talented, smart and has great instincts. Serve with Heart with Tracy running the show will have a major impact on any group of people that she works with.”
