Off the court, Dr. Warners has connected her love of volleyball with her degree is sports psychology. She has created a technology to help players develop their game. The device captures a player’s thoughts out loud and also allows them to receive feedback during practice. Warners has traveled around the country to work with some of the nation’s best players from six Division I teams on their home courts and continues to research what makes a volleyball player–and people–tick.
Warners earned her master’s degree from Michigan State University in sports psychology in 1996. She also received her Ph.D. from Michigan State. She and her husband Mark have three sons: Emmett, Carson and Tanner.
