Meet the Team

"Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for creating this team of support for moms!! I was a college athlete, as well as my husband, but that was before such a push in youth sports today. It is a changed world and I'm not sure how to deal with it all until today. My son is 8 and daughter 5, so the journey is just beginning. As a volleyball coach and competitive amateur golfer I have opportunities to coach my kids and I now have resources to answer my questions. I now am looking forward to seeing them grow, as well as myself, and our family through this experience. I look forward to contributing any way I can. Thanks a million!!!"
