Berube replaces former assistant Kristy Newman, who left the program to become the head coach at Marietta (Ohio) College.
"I am so excited about the opportunity to coach at Covenant under Joanna Ehman," Berube said. "Discipleship and volleyball are two things I am very passionate about and the ability to combine them in such a beautiful setting is truly a gift."
Berube comes to Covenant with a wealth of coaching and playing experience at various levels. She has been a coach and tournament director for the last three years with the Houston Volleyball Academy club in Houston, Texas. Berube has also coached several other high-level club teams and at the high school level.
Berube played three seasons at NCAA Division I member Sam Houston State from 2006-08 after spending a year at the Air Force Academy Prep. She played in 62 career matches for the Bearkats and longtime head coach Brenda Gray. Berube also played a year of professional volleyball in France.
"I'm so pleased that Brittney accepted this offer to join our program. Through the search and interview process, it was awesome to talk through how both of us could see the Lord's perfect timing in this for the Covenant volleyball program and for Brittney's aspirations as a coach," Ehman said. "She's intensely passionate about discipleship and sharing her love for Jesus, and has a background of playing at an incredibly high level. She's skilled in the technical instruction of the game and seems like the perfect fit to fill the needs that our team has right now. We couldn't be more excited to have her join our program."
Berube graduated from Sam Houston State with a degree in kinesiology in 2009. At SHSU, she was a member of Sigma Alpha Pi's National Society of Leadership and earned Academic Dean's List honors all four years.
"I've been blown away by everyone I've met thus far. The phrase 'In all things Christ preeminent' is more than a proclaimed motto, but visibly lived out. I cannot wait to begin this exciting new chapter and hope to bring at least a little wisdom from my playing experiences," Berube added.
Berube and her husband, Jonathan, have two sons.
