I am deeply passionate about coaching. My first coaching job was at age 19, when I took on coaching kids YMCA organized sports and as an assistant varsity high school wrestling coach. Ever since then I have coached and taught youth and adults in sports, careers and life. Coaching is my passion and throughout my life and career it has always been at the center and been rooted in my love for helping others and celebrating their successes. For simplicity my professional career started in early child and elementary education. After leaving the classroom, I then spent many years in marketing, creative, sales, IT, and other careers, but always gravitated back to coaching at whatever company and levels I could. I am so thrilled to be here at Merit America where I can continue to coach and help others.
