Meet HPC and TAZ Intern, Nella Chamblee

Nella Chamblee

My name is Nella Chamblee and I am a senior at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I live in Wendell, NC and attended Corinth Holders High School, where I played volleyball and softball.

I started playing travel softball at the age of 8 and continue to play in college. During that time, I assisted Kim Vardy of KVP Pitching by catching pitchers, giving catching and hitting lessons, and teaching the basic fundamentals of softball at weekly clinics. At Corinth Holders High School, I excelled in both volleyball and softball, earning awards such as MVP, All-Conference, All-District and All-State softball, and female athlete of the year.

Currently, I play softball at UNCW and am pursuing a degree in Mathematics and a minor in Recreation: Sports Leadership and Tourism Management, which is what lead me to an internship at The Athletic Zone. With this internship, I hope to learn more about the skills needed to coach elite athletes and help them perform at the highest level.
