As a goalkeeper coach, I have combined my two life passions: teaching and goalkeeping. Prior to dedicating myself full-time to goalkeeper coaching, I worked as a Corporate Trainer in the financial industry. For 10 years, I was responsible for training those at the executive, mid-management and new hire levels both at Brown Brothers Harriman and State Street Corporation. In my own words, “I love to see people succeed and thrive as a result of my tutelage.”
I have a strong background in goalkeeper training and team management; specifically in working with individuals/teams to develop and implement quality plans to meet and exceed their objectives. Team leader with a demonstrated track record of high quality leadership, interpersonal and communication skills, as well as high quality presentation and facilitation skills.
