My Story

After bowling competitively as a youth and in two separate national championship programs in college, I know what it takes to train your mind, body, and emotions to be an elite athlete. I also know what it feels like to be overcome by anxiety and stress to the point of backing away from the sport that defined me.

After bowling competitively as a youth and in two separate national championship programs in college, I know what it takes to train your mind, body, and emotions to be an elite athlete. I also know what it feels like to be overcome by anxiety and stress to the point of backing away from the sport that defined me.

Mindset Gear was founded from years of personal education, experience and observation. My

competitive journey helped lead me into the mental health field where I worked with children ranging from birth to adulthood. My career path grew more diverse as I dove into curriculum development, fundraising and event management, as well as NCAA Division I and II assistant coaching. Through each of these experiences, I found a recurring theme - MINDSET MATTERS. Specifically within the world of competitive athletics, the gear one equips their mind with, can be a GAME CHANGER! Mindset Gear believes there are three areas that athletes need to practice and refine to expand their competitive mindset and experience success.

  • 1. Mindset Focus™ - Youth and collegiate athletes need support learning to develop and train their mindset. My unique approach is in empowering athletes to develop Mindset Focus™.

  • 2. Self/Social Awareness - Elite athletes are experts at self and social awareness.

  • 3. Stress Management - Success on the field, court or lanes means an  athlete can experience a stressful situation, process the emotions that accompany the stress, and reset their focus in LESS THAN a minute.

 

My approach to coaching athletes is rooted in play, progression learning, and reflection. Whether it’s in a 1:1 coaching session, group session, or workshop with 20 athletes, each training will include fun and engaging activities, skill development that stacks and expands, and purposeful moments of pause and reflection to debrief what the athlete is experiencing, observing, and thinking.
