Prior to her stint at Georgetown, Staehle spent three seasons as head coach at the University of Rhode Island from 1999-2002 where her Rams compiled a record of 78-89-1. Her URI teams were twice runners-up in the Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament in 2001 and `02. Her first head coaching position was at St. John's University where she coached three seasons from 1996-99 and compiled a record of 53-89-1. Staehle also served on the NCAA Top 25 Voting Poll committee while at St. John's University for the 1998 and 1999 seasons and most recently during the 2009 season at GW.

She also coached for one season at Hofstra University (1995-96).
A 1993 graduate of UConn, Staehle played first base and outfield for the Huskies.
