Coach Drew’s Story

Anxious, scared, sad, and unsure are emotions that dominated my childhood. I was the smart kid who showed a lot of promise but kept my fears inside. Growing up in church, being talented, athletic, and well-liked by most didn't stop my silent fears from turning into depression as a self-loathing teen.

I played it safe as best as possible and had a hard time making decisions and living courageously.

I know anxiety and trauma from the inside out. Being bullied, witnessing acts of violence, and fearing punishment of all kinds kept me silent for a long time.

Things are different now. It feels good to be free! Free to speak, to write, to laugh, to cry, to coach, to care... to live!

The journey from insecurity and sadness to confidence and joy enables me to journey with others with insight and compassion.

Helping others live freely - this is what I do.
