What to Call Me: Maggie/ Coach Maggie

Who Am I: I have been a student-athlete my entire life. I began with Tae Kwon Do, which then led to soccer, volleyball, softball, beach basketball, and almost all other sports for fun. As I began to play club volleyball (MOD & Energy VBC), I knew that I wanted to pursue college volleyball. I played at Clarke University in Dubuque, Iowa while studying Psychology and Business Administration. During my summers back in Chicago, I have had the opportunity to be a Sports Camp Counselor and coach at Energy VBC expanding my experience working with youth sports. I am now in graduate school earning a double master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling along with Sport and Human Performance. Since these opportunities, I have discovered my passion for working with adolescents and I am excited to continue learning in my role as a mental performance consultant.

Why I’m Here: Sports were involved in my entire childhood and adolescent life. Being a teammate has taught me how to trust others, work together, and build on my communication skills. While being an overall athlete has taught me courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and time management skills. Most importantly sports have shaped me into who I am today. I have always had an interest in mental performance skills because I was a team captain who not only had to learn how to handle my own emotional pressures but also how to help my teammates cope on the court. I have a strong passion for mental performance skills because I wish I had more mental performance support when I was an athlete. I wish I had someone to guide me through my ups and downs on the court to become the best athlete possible, which is what I hope to do with the athletes at MOD.
