Coach Atkinson grew up in Baltimore, MD where she began playing lacrosse when she was 5 years old. In high school (McDonogh School), she was All-State in lacrosse and soccer, as well as an Under Armour All-American her senior year. She was recently inducted into the McDonogh School Hall of Fame.
She was a two-sport, Division I athlete at Northwestern University, where she was a three-time NCAA Division I Champion, two-time Academic All-Big Ten student athlete, and named Academic All-ALC. Northwestern won 4 straight American League Lacrosse Conference championships while Atkinson was on the team and went undefeated during the 2009 season.
In addition to lacrosse, Atkinson also played and started on the Northwestern soccer team for two seasons.
Post-graduation, Atkinson has gained extensive experience coaching in some of best Division I lacrosse programs in the country. She was a graduate assistant coach at Drexel University (Philadelphia, PA) where she began her Master’s in Education work.
After her time there, she spent 2 and half years at the Naval Academy working under Head Coach Cindy Timchal, who is one of the winningest coaches in lacrosse history. During her time at Navy, the Mids went on to win 2 Patriot League championships.
Atkinson then made the move out west and became the Director of Operations for the University of Southern California women’s lacrosse program. She spent two years here and gained significant experience in running a DI program within one of the top collegiate athletic departments in the country.
She finally made the transition to high school and middle school athletics when she took the middle school athletic director and head girls lacrosse coach positions at oaks Christian School, in Westlake Village, CA. She spent a year in Westlake Village, until she moved to San Diego to be closer to her family and began her position as head coach of girls lacrosse at Santa Margarita.
