Her true passion, however, is working with student athletes and the active population in general.
In addition to her educational background, Sally is a former competitive gymnast and junior Olympic coach. Her gymnastic background has allowed her to complete at an international level, traveling to countries, and developing relationships with friends around the globe. Despite graduating from Greenville Technical, she has always been a Clemson Tiger at heart. Her grandfather, Bobby Roberts, was the head basketball coach from 1962-1970 and was instrumental in building Little John Coliseum. Working in the same building where he began and lead his coaching career is just the icing on the cake. She looks forward to becoming an integral member of both the student and outside population of the Clemson community, as her passion for athletes and working with the active, adolescent population drew her to Clemson.
