Very seldom does life go the way you plan. It’s easy to be happy and positive when things go the way you want them to. As humans, our strongest tool is our mind, but it’s not uncommon for our minds to be our biggest weakness. Not knowing, or understanding, how to develop and train our minds, our disappointments, insecurities, fears, and stressors can negatively affect every aspect of our lives. As an athlete, training your mind is just as important, if not more so, than training your body. I help people, including children, develop their mental game.
I love working with kids, and recognize they all have a different story, different needs, and different struggles. I’ve always been physically and mentally tough. I’ve also always had a great deal of compassion for people, and I love helping people, assisting them in becoming the best version of themselves, their true self. My passion is to help create a positive world, one person at a time, and believe that working with kids is a great place to start.
My parents put me into gymnastics when I was three years old, mainly because I was driving them crazy; turns out I have ADHD, although I wasn’t officially diagnosed until I was in my late 40’s. There is no doubt that gymnastics, and my mental skills helped me cope with my ADHD, and be successful. By the age of six I was competing and by twelve I was a top level gymnast, competing nationally. I competed in the Junior Olympics and continued gymnastics in college. I started coaching kids at the age of 15 and have worked with gymnasts at the college level, as well as coaching overseas. Personally, my life could read as a Greek Tragedy, and yet I’m positive, strong, and content. I’m currently in the process of obtaining a certification in Mental Training. My experience, in life, as a gymnast, and a coach, as well as my training, have provided me with the skills and ability to help young athletes and I’m passionate about doing so!
