In 2010, Fiorentino assumed head coaching duties for the Bulldogs for three months, while UGA coach Meghan Boenig was on maternity leave. She also was responsible for all recruiting for the Hunt Seat team as well as adding more than 20 horses to the team herd, including the development of younger horses.
Fiorentino graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Georgia in 2006 with a bachelor's of science in sport business. She followed that with a master's degree in sport management in 2007.
