Why I enjoy working with CAC? – “I have loved being a soccer player and soccer coach for the past thirty years. I also have a severe case of the travel bug. So selfishly, this is a job that allows me to pursue two of my passions. In addition, there is immense satisfaction helping people learn and seeing smiles on other coaches, players, and community members everywhere I go.”
