Williams joined the Huntingdon staff after two seasons at Northwest-Shoals Community College in Muscle Shoals, Ala. After taking over a program on probation and with only seven recruited players during her first year, Williams helped the Patriots to their first Alabama Community College Conference Regional Tournament as a fast-pitch program last season.

In 2008, Northwest-Shoals finished with a 21-27 record and a fourth-place finish in the ACCC. In the season prior to Williams taking the helm, the Patriots finished last in the league.

Prior to joining NWSCC, Williams spent eight seasons as the varsity and junior varsity softball head coach at Tanner High School in Tanner, Ala. During her tenure with the Rattlers, Williams took a program that had gone 1-21 in her first year to becoming a state championship contender. She also spent six seasons as the head coach of the volleyball program at Tanner, where she won the Area Tournament in four of her six seasons.

On the field, Williams won better than 63 percent of her games, posting a 210-122 record, while at Tanner. During her final five seasons, the Rattlers won the Area Championship each year and participated in the Alabama Class 2A Tournament three times. On two occasions, in 2003 and 2005, she was named the Class 1A-3A Coach of the Year by the Decatur Daily.

Williams broke into the coaching profession in 1995 at Calhoun Community College, following a successful playing career both at Calhoun and Athens State College. In three seasons at Calhoun, she organized and scheduled practices, served as the tournament director of several tournaments and was the Warhawks' first-base coach.
