As a coach, I believe in stressing the importance of self confidence especially in young girls and young women and expressing to my team all of the mental, and physical lessons and benefits this game can give them, and the places soccer can take them in life. I truly attribute the person I am becoming and everything I have accomplished on and off the field to this game, and want to help players find that same passion for the game I have been lucky enough to find. I hope to support them in gaining everything they can and more from this sport and to get better every single day through hard work and dedication.
