About Me

The start of my story is not uncommon. I was an athletic youth player who loved the challenges and physical activity that soccer provided, but disliked the political coaching tactics and league. At 16 years old, while playing at the highest level in Calgary and playing up for the Calgary Callies major league team, I decided I had had enough and quit. I still coached at this time, coaching U6 community soccer for a teacher's kids, and rejoined league soccer a year later, but I had lost all motivation to reach a higher level with my skill development and had little desire to play at the university level. After high school I went away to the University of Guelph for a mechanical engineering undergrad, where I played pick-up soccer nearly every day and regained a passion and love for the game. At this time I really recognized the impact that soccer had on my life, there were developed skills and traits that transferred into my education, relationships, and work. On internship in Fort McMurray one summer, I joined the Fort McMurray Youth Soccer Association as a Camp Trainer and Assistant Coach for the U14 girl's team. After graduation I moved back to Calgary to start an M.Sc. in mechanical engineering, and immediately offered to coach as a volunteer at my old high school. I have been coaching the Senior Girl's team each fall and Junior Boy's team each spring ever since, which has been an extremely rewarding experience. I aim to bring leadership, goal-development, self-awareness, and visualization into my coaching practice, to help players develop skills both on and off the field. The passion my players have for the game is at the center of everything I do - I do my best to keep players striving to reach higher in the sport without being overwhelmed by stress or pressure.
