For the past two years, Eastman has been a regional staff coach for the ODP program where she specifically works with the U-13 age group. She graduated from Dartmouth in 1999 with a degree in environmental studies. She played for the Big Green women's soccer team for four seasons, helping the squad win an Ivy League title during her stay. In her final year, the Big Green advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals for the first time in school history.
Primarily a defender, Eastman started all but four games during her outstanding collegiate career, recording six goals and one assist in the 71 games she played. She was named NSCAA First Team All-America her senior year and was one of four finalists for the Honda Award in women's soccer. Equally impressive in the classroom, Eastman was chosen to be part of the GTE/CoSIDA Academic All-America National Team in 1998. She was a two-time recipient of the Lucinda Fernald Cup, an award recognizing leadership, enthusiasm and dedication. Three of her four years she was selected All-Ivy, and in 1998, she was named to the New England Women's Intercollegiate Soccer Association All-Star Team.
Eastman led the Big Green to an impressive 47-22-6 overall record, and as team captain in 1998, she led the team to a school record for wins (16) and shutouts (12).
Eastman was invited to participate in the inaugural WUSA combine in Orlando, Fla., in December of 2000 and participated in training camp with the Atlanta Beat during the spring of 2001.
Eastman is single and resides in Charlottesville.
