Background:

I have played tennis competitively in the Tidewater area for many years, and I am a teacher with a M.A. Ed. From William and Mary. However, our family chose to play soccer many years ago, and with my five sons, I have been actively involved with local club soccer for the past 19 years. During these years, I have volunteered for several clubs and sports organizations, serving as team mom, team manager, club representative, club secretary, board member, and soccer department head. Several years ago, I began attending soccer coaching training sessions and began to be mentored by the coaches at Golden Ball Soccer Academy. This led to desire to earn coaching licenses. I love seeing the excitement and determination of younger players as they develop both the individual fundamentals and team mentality of soccer.
