Pre-K-12th grade girls. I work with every gender but definitely have a passion for enhancing and developing skills for all age groups. It is just as exciting for me to see kids improve their skills as much as it is for them to see themselves get better! I also have a passion for assisting young coaches that have the same love of the game as I do.
