Hi, I'm Lee. Helping people make the most of their talent in sports and education is what I do,
and have been doing, for over 25 years.
I have worked on 4 year long qualification cycles, and at World Championships and the Olympics, with
athletes and coaches to help them stay focused, confident, ready, and most importantly joyous throughout the process on their way to top finishes and gold medals. I have had an assistant coaching role in Major League Soccer and currently work with US Soccer. I have worked with countless youth and professional athletes as well as Youth, NCAA and Pro coaches to make sure they were ready for their sport and their lives.
I have worked in education for almost 30 years. I am a tenured professor - focusing much of my work on my students and classroom as well as writing books and implementing workshops in the community. I have worked in at-risk classrooms and schools, designing and implementing various curricula and programs for teachers and students. I have created and implemented programs to help student-athletes prepare for high stakes tests including state tests, the SAT and the Wonderlic (the test that NCAA athletes take as part of the NFL combine).
I have been a coach (I have my USSF A Coaching License) and teacher in everything from high level youth finals to under 5 AYSO and from college classrooms to at-risk kindergarten programs - each one with the goal of creating an environment rich in opportunities for success. I continue to do all of these things (apart from the kindergarten and AYSO things, but those were awesome) because I absolutely love what I do! I am not going to suggest that I have all of the answers, but what I do have are some pretty amazing experiences as a coach, teacher, and dad. I believe that it is these unique experiences, and what I have learned as a result of these experiences, that makes me effective with my clients.
If you are an individual that wants to improve, or if you are a school, team or organization that wants to create and implement a complete program, or if you would like to bring me in to speak at your event, school or organization...let's chat.
Whatever you do...enjoy the journey.
