Wade returns for her second season as a member of the Stevenson softball coaching staff in 2013 while completing her bachelor's degree in business administration.

Wade comes to Stevenson after spending the last two seasons as an assistant coach at Division I Coppin State in 2010 and 2011. While there, she helped lead the Eagles to back-to-back MEAC Softball Championship appearances for just the second time in school history.

Off the field, Wade was responsible for monitoring the team's academic progress which resulted in the Eagles posting the highest grade point average among the 12 teams in the athletic department for two consecutive years.

In 2010, Wade helped lead Coppin State to a school record 22 wins and an appearance in the MEAC Softball Championship for the first time since 2005. That year, the team broke 14 individual and team records and had two All-MEAC First Team selections, including the MEAC Pitcher of the Year.

In 2011, the Eagles posted an 18-16 record and the first two MEAC tournament wins in school history. They also won a school record seven-straight games from April 20 to May 7 and broke eight individual and team records.

Prior to Coppin State, Wade earned her associate of arts degree from Dundalk Community College in 2007 where she played two seasons for the Lady Lions before moving on to the Lions of Division II Saint Leo that were ranked nationally and qualified for the NCAA Division II Softball Championship in 2008.

From 2005 to 2010, Wade was the general manager at Grand Slam USA in Timonium after an outstanding high school career at Baltimore Lutheran High School. She led the state of Maryland in hitting as a senior with a .789 average while finishing her career with a .561 average and leading the Saints to four consecutive IAAM championship games.
