Team zoom calls, 1 on 1 coaching, using the principles in the book, "Help Them Up"

Championship Culture teams create a safe environment where every member feels valued and empowered to use their voice for the betterment of the group. They possess a team-first mentality, where any task feels like it can be achieved because they know their team has their back. However, it's not always that easy. Investing time in developing and enhancing team culture can be difficult.


I have a passion for learning about a team and customizing a curriculum to address any areas of concern. Teams often want to improve on: productivity, trust, communication, accountability, creating a collective vision, connecting with team members, having more fun, etc.

The best teams say, "tell me more"! They don't tolerate team members, they celebrate them!


I get the amazing opportunity to work with a group of people, listen & learn, and then select creative ways to provide information  and tools on how to overcome obstacles.


I don't control playing time, salary, etc. so my job is solely to add value to the group so they can work towards achieving their personal definitions of success.

I educate prospective student-athletes and their families on the college search process to help them find the best academic, social and athletic FIT for their son or daughter!

The process can be overwhelming, confusing and stressful. I was in high school not too many years ago and had to make the tough decision on where to attend college. Through hours of research and college visits, I am truly grateful for the people, experiences and lifelong friendships I made while attending Newbury College.


I am excited to offer my guidance and provide information that is both efficient and effective in navigating the college process. Although I WILL NOT GUARANTEE admission into any college, I am confident I can add value to kids who are committed to playing their sport in college. I offer personalized college advising services to prospective student-athletes, who are willing to put in the time that it will take to reach out to college admissions departments and coaches, to ensure they have all the information they need to select a college.


There are plenty of college recruiting websites where kids can make a profile and have their information sent out to colleges. As a former college coach, receiving an email DIRECTLY from the prospective student-athlete showed initiative and professionalism, which stood out to me, more so than an email from a third party service, high school coach or parent. If a kid is willing to invest in their future, I am willing to share my knowledge with a step-by-step process.

I am so excited to have self-published a book that I believe will help so many players and coaches.


Together, they can build and sustain a championship culture environment, where everyone feels safe, valued, has a voice and has joy playing the game of basketball!

This service is for coaches who would like to hire me to speak to their team about the principles in the book and for players/coaches who want to work with me 1 on 1 over the phone or video chat to enhance leadership skills!


I am here for YOU!


For players who want to be leaders and display captain like qualities, we can really dive into your personal leadership style and find ways for you to excel. For coaches who read the book, but need some clarity on how to best implement the principles, we can discuss any obstacles you are facing or anticipate happening. We can also discuss x's and o's, strategy, etc. ​
