Position: Head Coach
I grew up in Gillsville, GA and went to East Hall High School. While at East Hall I was a member of the baseball team. Shortly after graduation, I attended college where I majored in Paramedicine. I worked for 14 years as a firefighter/paramedic for Hall County Fire Services before becoming a Healthcare Science teacher at East Hall Middle School. Although, I am a full-time teacher, I also continue to work part-time, as a firefighter/paramedic.
I was an Assistant Coach for East Hall Softball for 9 years, Head Coach for East Hall Middle School for 1 year. Along with these experiences, I also was an Assistant Coach for East Hall baseball for 21 years.
I am a Christain family man; married for 25 years and have three daughters: Eboni, Alexis Amari, and three granddaughters. I am honored to lead the East Hall Softball program and looking forward to great things. I am very excited to see what the year has in store for the rest of the Viking family, as well as myself.

My name is Chelsea Miller. I teach 7th grade math at East Hall Middle School and have served as an assistant coach on the East Hall Lady Vikings middle school softball team for the past four years. I consider this team to be a part of my family as I am an alumna of East Hall High School and played as an outfielder on the East Hall softball team for four years, along with travel softball throughout the summer. Graduating third in my class in the spring of 2012, I moved to Dahlonega, Ga to attend the University of North Georgia.

Three years later, I graduated from Georgia Southern University with a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction.
