”The best part about my job is the connection with my players. We co-create a coaching relationship, that allows us to explore the raw and real in a way that reveals to us: how to step into full potential.

As a coach I am very honest, compassionate and hold a high standard for what I know my players are capable of. Watching them grow into their greatest version is such a rewarding feeling for the work we put in together.”
