Why I Want To Be A Coach
I decided I wanted to work in the sports area since I was studying Psychology in Venezuela.
One of my professors supported the idea and gave me some advice and that’s when I decided to get a Master’s degree in Sports Psychology.
After getting my Master’s degree, I started working with track and field athletes and I loved it! I did some research work and papers about it. I also started working with athletes of other sports disciplines.
Some time later I had the opportunity of going to the London 2012 Olympic games as the Venezuelan’s delegations Sports Psychologist.
Nowadays I work in the US as a Mental Skills Coach with athletes of several disciplines such as baseball, tennis, boxing, soccer, taekwondo, etc.
My Coaching Philosophy
I believe each athlete has a huge potential to improve performance by developing their mental skills. The more you train your mind the better results the athlete will get in sports and personal life.
