Brandi’s Personal Coaching Mission Statement:
I coach because I want to share what I’ve learned. I love to ignite passion in others, for their sport and for their own development. My goal is to inspire and empower, to demonstrate that anything is possible with hard work, perseverance and a positive mindset. I want students to realize their potential, to bring it out and share it. I want them to experience the joy of accomplishment, the thrill of setting goals and achieving them, and the wisdom in learning from mistakes. I believe in the power of sport to teach confidence, tenacity, integrity, humility, respect, and teamwork. I am honored to play such an important part in each student’s development.
