The University of Kentucky is a high-pressurized university when it comes to athletics, so I get it when athletes feel the pressure to live up to high expectations they put on themselves and the high expectations bestowed upon them from other sources that are out of their control. The social media effect is where they can lose themselves.

Communicating, connecting with and motivating today's’ athletes can be challenging.  My experience as a player and coach in a high-pressure environment gives me a great understanding of what athletes go through and how they think and feel as I have been on both sides of the game.

I know the daily grind and needs of someone who dedicates there life to sports. I will also help them stay connected to the person on the inside while managing that person on the outside.  The "Public Eye Person"   

Just as they need to work on their physical skills, they also need to work on their transferable life skills.​

Athletes feel there is no other layer to them outside of their sport and they also feel they don't have transferable skills that will allow a company to hire them.

I am a strong believer that sports is the greatest metaphor for teaching transferable life skills.


I help them think beyond their workout, practice and games to better focus on their life outside of their sport.  I help them develop in each specific area that they are struggling in.

  • Develop leadership skills

  • Discover their next career path after sports

  • Develop workplace etiquette skills

  • Develop time management and organization skills

  • Develop goal setting plans and skills

  • Develop personal accountability skills

Athletes have the need to always be challenged.  I will challenge them every step of the way to give them that winning edge for life.
