A former college and high school coach, Tucker began her NCHSAA career in 1991. Prior to that, she had stints as a successful high school basketball coach and volleyball coach. She also served as an assistant coach for the North Carolina State University women’s basketball program under legendary head coach Kay Yow. Her duties included overseeing the team’s academic progress.
