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 2018 team was chosen based on their strong commitment to leadership development and years of experience in leadership roles throughout high school, college, sports, and their careers. Their diverse backgrounds – in fields like neuroscience, business, education, health sciences, marketing, communication, psychology, technology, and of course, leadership – demonstrate how versatile and applicable these skills and tools are in all industries.

We are excited for this incredible group of individuals to work together to facilitate another summer of
Inspiring Learning, Leadership, and Service!
