Dreams are achievable, especially with a little help and inspiration.
I have been a coach ever since my own professional soccer career ended and I’m passionate about the potential power and responsibility that goes with being a "true" coach. Prior to joining GH I was the Associate Head Coach of the Berkeley Women’s Soccer Team, I had been Head Coach at St. Mary’s in California, and even Interim Head Coach of a professional soccer team. I realized that the Xs and Os of soccer was not my passion, and joined GH to help real people off the field improve their lives, achieve their dreams, and live healthier.
I had the opportunity as a player to compete for my nation on the US Women’s National Soccer Team, as well as in professional leagues, and I learned that you do not become a champion by just showing up. You become a champion and achieve your goals when you accept, focus on and work on the small things that impact your results and can move you closer to your dreams.
I have endured 12 surgeries and was told by many doctors that I would never be able to run and compete at the highest level of athletics again. They were wrong. I know what it means to have dreams and goals, and I know what it means to have challenges get in the way. I think that is why I can connect with people with all sorts of life struggles, who wonder how they got here and how they can get past it. I know what it means to be broken, start over, and re-build. All of my years of physical therapy and rehab have educated me on the amazing human body. They have also inspired me to help people get over the “hump,” I listen, I connect, and I get results.
