It’s a great book and it really helped me get my footing on coaching. It really addresses everything I wanted to know and more. I remember thinking every evening after reading a section that: “Wow, if I can get this down, I’d be a great coach” and I felt challenged and inspired. I still go back to it because some things they just explained so wonderfully.

I studied Athletic Training in my undergraduate years, then went on to become a graduate assistant where I was able to use my athletic training skills as a Certified ATC while obtaining my Master’s Degree in Human Services: Health and Wellness. I chose Wellcoaches for my road to the NBHWC because I really wanted to be a part of the best of the best!
