Ani’s coaching philosophy goes directly to being a lifelong Bruin and student of sport; she looked up to the late, great john Wooden and his theory that little things make big things happen. She believes that it is her responsibility as a coach to be a positive role model both on and off the court.

She loves watching her players grow and develop as athletes. She takes pride in coaching them at such a young age and cementing solid fundamentals.

Ani has been a nurse for 10 years, its how she met her husband. They have a new baby, Matthew, born in October; he is a regular at practices. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her Maltese, Bella, and following UCLA athletics.

“If you persevere long enough, if you do the right things
long enough,
the right things will happen.
