Micah White – 1st Vice President

 
  • I’m a native of Birmingham, AL and moved to Richmond in 1996. As a child I was a very active athlete playing many sports including volleyball. I started playing volleyball at the age of 14 for Birmingham’s Youth Games Co-Ed Volleyball team and that was when I fell in love with the sport of volleyball. I then joined the B.A.V.A. (Birmingham Area Volleyball Association) club team. After graduating from HS, I continued to play with B.A.V.A. on their top-level men’s team until moving to Virginia at the age of 21.

    While at Virginia State University I joined the Lady Trojans as the head assistant. While coaching at VSU I joined Richmond Volleyball Club to play in their men and co-ed leagues. I was invited to coach the 16 Regionals team at RVC and accepted. I then joined the Diamond Juniors program as the 15’s coach and was there for 5 successful years.

         During this time I left VSU and became the head volleyball coach at James River High School. While there, we compiled a record of 134 wins and only 27 losses. I was Coach of the Year six times in the district and three times in the region. In 2009, I left to pursue a career in entertainment in Los Angeles. I returned to Richmond in 2012. I returned to coaching at James River High School in 2016 and remained there until the season was interrupted by the pandemic in 2020.

    I am no longer coaching but desire to continue giving back by serving on the RVC Board. Volleyball has had a tremendous impact on my life and helped me grow as person in many positive ways. Therefore, being of service to the women, men, girls, and boys at RVC is of top importance.

Michelle Mertens – Treasurer

  • I fully believe in the mission of RVC. I have played volleyball for over 20 years, from high school to traveling and at the collegiate level. I have found that the teamwork and communication skills that can be developed in an athletic environment are invaluable. I appreciate that RVC is creating that environment for its younger members and giving them the opportunity to hone those skills. I recently joined the nonprofit industry and believe I could use new skills gained as well as those from prior positions to help the board and organization. Over the last nine months I have worked with my organization as we navigate COVID-19 and responding to the challenges presented. It has been a unique time, but one that has presented me with the opportunity to gain experiences in navigating through crisis and assisting business decisions in uncertain times. While my background is largely in accounting, I thrive when helping others. I believe serving on the board would provide me the opportunity to bring my accounting expertise with my passion for helping others together.

Whitney Curtis – Director

  • Sports and volleyball have always been a big part of my life. I am from the Richmond area where I played volleyball in RVC youth leagues, travel leagues and camps beginning in 8th grade. Through volleyball, I met some of my very best friends, had great coaches, and have created some of my favorite memories. I graduated from Virginia Tech with a business degree, completed my first master’s degree in Sport Leadership from VCU, and just recently earned my MBA from Jacksonville University. I worked in collegiate sports marketing for over a decade before moving back to the Richmond area where I currently serve as a Development Manager for a local non-profit. Previously I was the head coach of a local varsity girls’ team and coached travel teams as an assistant. Since moving back to the Richmond area, I currently volunteer as a girls’ volleyball coach at Manchester High School. I also play in a women’s league which is usually the highlight of my week!.

Daniel Jongleux – Director

 

  • I have been a member of RVC for two years, playing in adult leagues. My first interaction with RVC was as the Operations Director for Stonewall Sports – Richmond where I formed a relationship betwee n the two organizations. After forging the relationship, I had the opportunity to join one of your adult leagues where I quickly grew fond of the sport. I am a graduate of Appalachian State University where I studied Recreation Management. Since graduating, I have worked at Raleigh Parks and Recreation, the YMCA, and Henrico Education Foundation. I feel my experience in both the recreation and non-profit sectors will provide valuable knowledge and experience to the board of RVC.I also serve in multiple volunteer capacities and organizations. Some of which include serving as a committee member for the North Carolina Parks and Recreation Assoc., steering committee member for the YMCA of Greater Richmond’s LGBTQ+ Employee Resource Group, as well as the Founding Operations Director and Second Commissioner of Stonewall Sports – Richmond. I hope to better serve our community and surrounding areas as a board member of Richmond Volleyball Club.
