Meet the Coaches

Our coaches bring our programs to life with their passion for leadership development and years of diverse experience.

The work that we do would not be possible without our talented, passionate Coaches!

Our team of Summer 2019 Leadership Coaches were chosen based on their strong commitment to leadership development and experience in leadership roles in high school, college, athletics, and careers. They demonstrate a strong commitment to leadership development and are trained to adapt to any situation or group.

Their diverse roles in fields such as business, education, psychology, and technology, demonstrate how applicable leadership is in all industries. We are excited to introduce this incredible group of individuals who continually inspire learning, leadership, and service.  

Stay tuned for our Summer 2020 team!
