I help athletes discover their new identity and life's direction after sports. I believe that what drove us in athletics, still drives us now. All it takes is a little guidance, and a push in the right direction.

It's become my personal mission to reach out and help others overcome the fear, frustration, and uncertainty associated with life post-athletics.

The question to ask oneself after hanging up the jersey isn’t: “who am I now?” The question is: “who do I want to become, and why?”
