I’m Geo. I play many roles in my life…mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend, business owner, life & business coach, TV personality, speaker, soccer coach, and soccer player. I spent the majority of my childhood and early adult life only knowing myself as one thing – a soccer player. My dream as a child was to play high-level soccer both collegiately and professionally. That dream was shattered after suffering two devastating injuries as a teenager.
The injuries resulted in a complete identity loss and led me down a path of self-discovery that included years of questioning who I was. As I look back, this was a blessing in disguise as it led to my self-realization and launching of my own life coaching business where I now use my experience to help others including athletes, business owners, and entrepreneurs.
In Spring of 2018, I succeeded in my childhood dream to play premier soccer with the Milwaukee Torrent at the age of 39. While I am proud of my personal accomplishments and learned much from the experience, I felt unsettled and that my work isn’t finished.
After returning to play nearly twenty years later, I realized very little has changed since my glory days. Young girls like myself are sacrificing for the sport they love only to be met with dead ends and broken dreams. I witnessed many struggles these women face while balancing everyday life with the intense pressure to train, practice, and compete.
Here are some:
My mission is to enhance the soccer culture in the Green Bay area by providing a platform for elite female players throughout Wisconsin. I want to provide an opportunity to compete at a high level yet provide an environment where they can reconnect with the joy that often gets lost along the way. I have a vision for a program that will combine the challenge of premier soccer with the support of mentors, giving female athletes the opportunity to continue to play at a high level while guiding them through the struggles inherent with what it takes to do so. I plan to create a program that focuses on using sport as a path to self-discovery instead of sacrifice so athletes can use their skills both on and off the field while creating glorious moments and bringing our community together.
