Hello! I am Coach Callie. I’m a retired military spouse whom was blessed to live overseas in some of the most beautiful locales which allowed me to be very active in various outdoor activities and sports. I’ve had the opportunity to travel, hike, and experience breathtaking outdoor adventures, while participating in a variety of sports throughout my life such as: gymnastics, diving, swimming, surfing, stand-up paddle-boarding, climbing, and snowboarding.

Along the way, I have coached gymnastics, snowboarding, swimming, paddle-boarding, and created multi-sport flexibility, strengthening, and technique clinics. I have trained group classes and individuals in water therapy for those with arthritis and limited/poor mobility. Trained and certified in the past as a Lifeguard, I had the opportunity to certify and train new and seasoned Lifeguards in basic fundamentals of water safety and lifesaving skills. As a sports and health sciences major, I was able to study and research various topics within sports psychology, basic injury and care, and strength and conditioning to assist in complementing my existing skillsets to better aid, educate, and train athletes in achieving optimal performance. I am really excited to use my experience in a variety of areas to encourage our athletes to tap further into their potential and excel in their athletic paths!
