More About Me

I have been playing soccer since I was 5 years old. I received a scholarship to play soccer at a Division II college in North Carolina where I earned my undergraduate degree in physical education. I also have a Masters in Teaching and an NC Professional Teaching License from UNC-Pembroke.

I coached a high school girls varsity soccer team for 2 years in Pembroke where I built the program from scratch by recruiting many girls from other sport teams within the high school. They enjoyed playing soccer and so much that some of the girls are currently coaching their siblings in recreational soccer.

When I moved to Raleigh, I became involved in Club Soccer at Triangle United in Chapel Hill; where I am the head coach for a local U-17 Challenge Team..
Currently, I teach Physical Education for Grades (K-7) at Triangle Math & Science Academy; I have also taught Kindergarten for a couple of years.

Soccer Scholarship to St. Andrews Presbyterian College, August 2004- May 2008
Varsity Soccer Coach at Purnell Swett High School 2008-2010
Head Coach at Triangle United Club Girls U-17 2010-2012
Soccer Referee for Triangle Area 2012
Coach Up Soccer Personal Trainer 2013-...

1 hour- work on fundamentals of the game:
-dribbling- athlete will understand how to dribble with the inside and outside of their foot to fully understand how to control the ball. (no kicking and chasing the ball)
-trapping- athlete will practice locking their ankle and measuring where to trap the ball on impact for great control and depth
-foot skills- athlete will practice (or learn) the step over, pull back, scissors, fake, ... to get away from their opponents.
-aggressiveness- I will create fun game activities for athletes to learn how to be more aggressive and be the first one to the ball.

Very patient and warm to my child. She made the session fun with great energy!

Client Review Soccer

Coach Jamie is very knowledgeable and patient in helping my daughter with her soccer skills. They work well together and I have seen great progress. Jamie was able to identify areas of development during the first session and began working on those right away, as well as highlighting skills my daughter already possesses. I highly recommend her approach to teaching soccer skills.

Client Review Soccer

Jamie was great with Blake.
She was early to our meeting and took the time to discuss the instructional period with Blake and me.
It shows that she is a true professional soccer player and teacher.
She was very patience with Blake with his special needs.
We are very excited about our next training sessions.
I would strongly recommend Jamie for anyone who has a child wanting to improve their game and technique.
