Since 2005 she has served as a head coach with the club helping more than 50 of her players in the 2009 and 2014 graduating classes continue their careers at the collegiate level. Along with her work with NEMS, Chizmar worked for the Coppermine Lacrosse Club from 2013-15 and spent three seasons as a varsity girl assistant coach at the John Carroll School in Bel Air, Md.

Coach Mullady and her staff are amazing and make every effort to communicate with the parents and help calm any fears on may have about having their child/ren so far away. Can\'t wait to do it again next year!!!
