The BE BETTER story isn’t about me. It’s a story of relationships that helps remind us that we are strong on our own, and better together. It’s about the people who trust me, ask me for recommendations and advice, and who I coach to recognize the beauty and potential that is already inside each one of you. This is about the connection I feel with parents, athletes, and coaches of all ages as we engage in these conversations about the next right step on the path and how to honor it with intention.  It’s about the feeling I get when I am in a gym, on the beach, in a yoga class, or standing on a pool deck watching people use the sports they love as a vessel to become the best versions of themselves.  I know the journey intimately.  It’s been a part of my own healing, thriving and most importantly has given me some of the most valuable relationships in my life. Volleyball has helped me understand myself, my strengths and weaknesses, and given me a place to come back to again and again to work on them. 

As much as I love to break down the games I love by stats and technical skill, my unique gift is to see patterns that have happened on an athlete's journey and help them see the why behind their hard work or perhaps where they are challenged on the road to accomplish their goals. My new course, High Performance Zen, is a great self paced way to help athletes and their families avoid the pitfalls of burnout and create wellness for life. And our Be Better monthly membership gives you access to live discussions with me weekly, discounts on products and courses, and a robust video library of conversations with Olympians, volleyball pros, and healers of all kinds, focused on being as strong as we can on our own, so we can Be Better together.  

Be Better is also a platform to connect all the ideas, services, and businesses of the volleyball community in one place so we can come together and support each other.  Each month we will grow with more listings of great services from the people you want to support because they love the game as much as you do. We are not competition, we are a rising tide for athletes, parents, and coaches and a place to promote great camps, products, and content that raises the vibration in the gym, on the beach, and all over this planet that we love. 

Over the last year, I have had a number of mothers and daughters that I have built deep relationships with as I have had the honor to be a part of their journey.  Many times I’ve noticed, it’s not the things that happen at practice or during a game that we talk about, it’s the relationships off the court that have an impact on our self worth, mindset, and confidence. Often the paths they have walked  remind me of myself and my own two girls. When you are delving into topics of identity, self worth, and the relationships that shape young minds on those things, trust is the most important issue. As both a parent and a coach, I know that relationship is in a tough spot these days. Right alongside my relationship with my own kids, this coaching relationship is a sacred space for me, and you have my word, I will always treat it that way.

Chip Conley said in one of the many legendary Finding Mastery episodes that I’ve listened to over the years 

“Wisdom is pattern recognition.”

Over the last few years as my vision for Be Better has come together, there have been some starts and stops and twists and turns as I figured out some patterns in myself and in the world that needed healing.  As the coach and healer I am, I want you to know that you can trust me. Whether coaching, energy healing or a combination of both, I am here to honor an athlete’s progress in life and let it transform the way she plays.  I will never stop learning new ways to Be Better and I will always  shine the light so you can connect with the greatness that is already inside of you so you can BE BETTER too. Come join us!

With love & optimism,
