"My dad would tell me every day how important practicing was and it was not until my career was over that I realized a lot of missed opportunities that were in my control. My goal in life is to help lead aspiring softball players in the right direction, with the right tools and knowledge to create success. My past experiences help to enlighten my clients on the important things in life, as well as how the skills you develop as an athlete will build a great foundation for the 'real world' ".
