I work with athletes, parents, and coaches, as well as managers and leaders from all walks of life. I help people shift from good to great, and become the best version of themselves.  I teach them how to Win From Within so they show up with courage and confidence on the biggest day, the biggest stage of their life.

Fear to FIERCE is my most popular Mental Toughness Training and it includes a variety of athletes, parents and coaches.  They are building a toolkit to manage the voice of self-doubt and face the storms that sport (and life) always bring.


Since winning matters not only in sport but also in business, I have become a sought-after corporate coach, leadership coach, life coach, and motivational speaker. My vast experience in the elite world of sport transfers directly to the boardroom where success is talent oriented and people driven. Teams and leaders are raising the bar after taking my sessions: Build a Winning Team, Transform Managers to Leaders, and Ignite the Leader Within.
