I am actively involved with my community’s youth sports programs where I spend much of my free time coaching basketball, soccer, and baseball. I currently serve as a head coach for the Westosha Central High School travel basketball program (8th grade boys) and for the Racine Area Soccer Association.

I believe youth sports not only helps keep our children active and physically fit, but it also helps them learn the value of  hard work and collaboration, while developing their skills in communication, time-management, goal-setting, and effectively learning how to handle both success and adversity. And it’s a heck of a lot of fun – for me and the kids!
