Parks is entering her second season at Holy Cross in 2017-2018. She joined the Crusaders after spending the 2015-2016 season as the assistant coach at Rhode Island, where she helped lead the Rams to a spot in the Atlantic 10 Quarterfinals.

Before her time at Rhode Island, Parks served as an assistant coach for the women’s basketball program at Hartwick College for three seasons.

She also helped lead the team to an ECAC Championship in 2013, the first in program history. In 2012, the Hawks upheld a 12 game winning streak, which was the third longest in school history.
A 2009 graduate of Adelphi, she played two seasons with Panthers while seeing action in 52 games. After earning her bachelor’s degree in arts and sciences, Parks recently completed her master’s of sports management from Adelphi.
