As the program manager for sports safety, where much of my work is focused on keeping kids healthy and in top shape for sports, I’m inspired by the young athletes I meet or hear about each day.

When I’m not working at Safe Kids, I spend most of my time coaching a club field hockey team with girls ages 12-19.

They are incredible athletes and have an inspiring passion for the game.
