I chose South Shore Select because it has been my home since I was 5 years old. It is the place where I was able to be myself, create forever lasting memories and fall in love with the beautiful game of soccer. The skills and life lessons I learned growing up with Select couldn’t have been taught in a classroom but rather out on an open field surrounded by some pretty incredible role models. To be able to coach strong and eager young women who are passionate about the game of soccer just like I was is the most rewarding part of my job.
