In 2015, I began my career as youth soccer coach with Gaston United, in North Carolina and have continued to coach since then. I have worked for several international sports for development programs, including a 2015 internship with Futbol Con Corazón in Barranquilla, Colombia. In 2014, as a volunteer for Partners of the Americas youth exchange program in Washington D.C. In 2012, as a volunteer for the Beyond Sport Conference in London. I worked for the YMCA in North Carolina as a youth coach and as a league referee/coordinator from 2017-2018 before moving to Costa Rica.
I am bilingual and I have grown up in a multi-cultural background, having lived in the USA, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. I am a sports fanatic and also enjoy hanging out with my dog. My goal is to help every child develop a lifelong love of healthy physical activity.
