Involved in soccer from a young age. Played locally with LaHave soccer (that means I’m old!)
I’ve been coaching since I was 17 years old. Basketball at first and when my kids picked soccer, I was voluntold as a coach :) Obtained all the community level courses, provincial B and CSA C level. Goal keeper level 1 coach. Joined the board of Thunder FC in 2008 and assumed the presidents role a few years later. Worked with SNS to have Thunder become one of the first club licensed organizations in Canada. Obtained my learning facilitator credentials to allow me to provide coaching courses and mentoring. I left the Thunder presidents role in 2019 but maintain a position on the board as an advisor. I have coached and assisted with many provincial teams as well as on field work with the Whitecaps and REX groups in Halifax. I’m completing the work on my coach evaluator certifications as well as being accepted to the National B certification course. I accepted the nomination for South Shore United Presidents role in 2020 after working closely with the club as a coach and advisor for a few years. I look forward to helping build SSU into the great soccer community partner that the South Shore deserves. With the amazing board members, coaches, parents and players in our club. I’m excited to see us grow and provide quality experiences and opportunities for our members.
