Who is Coach Mandy?
I am a passionate, dedicated, and committed coach. I coached collegiate softball for 20+ yrs, nine as a Division One Head Coach, and I wanted to expand my ability to help people achieve their full potential & greater results not only in their sport, but in their life. When I learned about life coaching and I could help people in so many ways that were meaningful to them, I knew it was a perfect match. I believe in coaching the person, not the player. Sports is what you do, not who you are.
My first hand experience working with those wanting to achieve high level goals and facing life transitions will be an asset to anyone I coach. I also personally experienced the challenges of a major life transition when I made the decision to change my career. This gave me valuable insight which will enhance my clients experience. I bring expertise in goal setting, leadership development, personal development, and navigating through life transitions.
When you work with me, you will be working with a coach who walks the "whatever it takes" walk to help you reach your desired goals and get through any obstacle you may be facing. I have said many times on the field "if it were easy then everybody would do it", so I know and coach you acknowledging it won't be easy, but it will be worth it.
I received my Professional Coaching Certification and Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner Certification in July of 2010 from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). I also have a Master of Science degree in Human Performance, am a Certified and Licensed Athletic Trainer through the National Athletic Trainers Association and State of Connecticut, and a Four-Star Master Coach from the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.
My experience makes me an effective coach with one on one coaching, group workshops, and team building activities. My insights, education and experience, passion for helping others, and desire for continuous personal growth yield a results oriented coach. If you want to be the best you can be, reach a new goal, are facing a transition, or just work with someone who will help you grow and create awareness of what and how you do things, then I AM the COACH for you.
I am hosting a radio show on the 1st & 3rd Friday of each month at Noon EST on Life Coach Radio Network. My show is called "Train Your Brain to Up Your Game with Coach Mandy"
I am also the Sports Performance Coach for the University of Hartford Softball Program
