Coaching Bio

I began playing volleyball in 2008 and have been lucky enough to have travelled and played throughout the world. I have recently finished playing full time for the Australian Women’s Volleyball team as Captain and starting setter. I spent 4 years playing collegiate volleyball throughout the United States of America where I captained a national Championship team at the National Junior College level as well as played 2 years in the top division of the NCAA. I graduated off 4 years of full scholarship tuition with a bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology. *Currently unavailable for coaching - Please contact PlayBook to be added to my waitlist*

As a coach I am currently the Head of Volleyball at Wesley College, Head of Girls and Youth at the Greater Melbourne Volleyball Academy and assistant coaching at the Victorian State team level. Now that I have completed playing, I am now available to extend my international and national experience to athletes that are looking to spend time fine tuning their individual skills and to assist teams in their development together and their cohesion whilst playing. 2019-2022 Australian Womens National Team Captain 2018-2022 Australian Womens National Team Representative and Setter (2019 Gold Medalist and 2022 Bronze Medalist) 2019-2022 Melbourne Vipers Captain and Setter 2014-2018 USA Collegiate Athlete (NCAA Div 1 and NJCAA Div 2) 2015-NJCAA National Champion and Captain (Record 57:0) ​

I booked a few sessions with Kelly Lean for my daughter and a friend earlier this year. Kelly was awesome. I'm a big believer in the power of mentors and good role models and Kelly is all this. She was so good and generous, sharing her wisdom and knowledge for the game of volleyball, being a team player, leadership skills and giving her overall bigger perspective on life. She is a natural coach and teacher, an inspiration. My daughter and her friend not only improved their skill set, in my opinion they gained a great life experience from the sessions. Thank you Kelly.
