Amber Brooks-Lefevers enters her first year as a volunteer assistant coach with the UNLV volleyball program.
Brooks-Lefevers comes to UNLV after serving as the head varsity volleyball coach at The Emery/Weiner School in Houston, Texas in 2013. She led the Lady Jags to a second-place finish in TAPPS District 4-4A play en route to a district title and a berth in the TAPPS 4A State Tournament.
She mentored Sarah Friedman, a 2014 graduate of The Emery/Weiner School, to all-state and all-district first team honors as a senior. Friedman would become the first student-athlete in the school's history to sign a NCAA Division I scholarship (Southeastern Louisiana).
Prior to coaching at the high school level, Brooks-Lefevers served as a master coach for the Texas Tornados (July 2009-July 2012) and the Fort Bend Fire (July 2012-July 2014) volleyball clubs. She also served as the assistant camp director with the former team and the assistant skills director with the latter squad.
As a collegiate player, she led the University of Texas-Brownsville to an NAIA national championship in 2011 behind a 32-2 overall record. The Ocelots finished first in the Red River Athletic Conference with a perfect 9-0 mark. Individually, she led the nation in aces and took home all-conference first team honors as well as being tabbed as the league's setter of the year.
Prior to her one season in Brownsville, she attended the University of Texas at San Antonio (2008-09) and the University of Houston (2010).
She earned her bachelor's of science degree in kinesiology with a minor in health and nutrition from Houston in 2013.
Brooks-Lefevers and her husband Robert Lefevers III, a captain in the United States Air Force, reside in Las Vegas.
