I grew up racing amateur motocross in the Southeast United States. For years, I traveled with my dad to the races. He was my mechanic, primary sponsor, transportation specialist and biggest fan. It was some of the best days of my life and the lessons learned on the track helped me throughout life.
Once I stopped racing I focused on college. I went on to earn my bachelor’s degree in psychology at Rutgers University in New Jersey, Masters degree in psychology at The California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) in Fresno, CA and Ph.D. in clinical psychology at CSPP.
I have worked in the mental health field in a variety of positions since 1992. I also have 10 years of teaching experience at a local university in South Carolina. After many years of working in the field of psychology, I found myself burned out and unfulfilled. However, in 2014 I began working as a Motocross Mental Performance Coach and partnered with ClubMx training facility in Chesterfield, SC.
It was like a breath of fresh air. I was passionate again in the work I was doing. Reconnecting with the sport of motocross after so many years was amazing. Since then, I have worked with top factory riders in the 250 and 450 classes as well as amateurs. It truly is a dream come true.
Most of my work occurs over the phone and via facetime. As long as I have a cell phone signal, I can help my clients. And, the best part is that anyone can do the same. You do not need a doctorate, masters or even an undergraduate college degree. As long as you have the right tools and ability, you too can do it.
I created this course for one reason: To give current riding coaches, motocross finess trainers, team managers and parents another powerful tool in helping their riders succeed.
Investing in your education is the best way to help yourself and those around you. I provide you with the tools and blueprint to make this happen. I walk you through each step of the way. Are you in?
