Here's something interesting... Conley is a distant relative to famous poet Edgar Allan Poe. With her great-grandmother Poe’s first cousin, Conley is a first cousin, thrice (three times) removed from the writer.
Quotable quote: “Pay attention to DETAIL! The smallest things count the most! Celebrate the little things, because really, they end up being the big things. In the classroom- take great notes and listen to the expectations of the instructor. Sit in the first three rows so that the professor notices you. In the community- remember names of everyone you come into contact with, because every role is significant. On the field- detail is what makes you great.”
What's she up to now? After her graduation from Alabama, Conley spent three seasons as a volunteer assistant and graduate assistant at Missouri State. 2017 brought her first full-time assistant coaching role, on staff at Lindenwood University, a Division II school.
