I believe in using sport and play to build resilient people. For the past 11 years, I have run soccer practices and/or functional fitness sessions for players in San Francisco who range from kindergarteners playing soccer for the first time to youth who later graduated to college play to adults returning to soccer after long spells away. I currently hold a United States Soccer Federation "E" license and am studying for the USSF D. I keep up-to-date in both soccer and speed/strength/agility training with professional memberships, mentorships, and collaborations with top-licensed coaches. I continue to play in the Golden Gate Women's Soccer League and a variety of weeknight leagues. In roles that have ranged from team parent to manager to coach, I’ve been a part of the SF Vikings Soccer Club family for the past 12 years.
