Jay has experience working with athletes and performers at the Olympic, National, College, and High School levels. He spent the greater part of two years working with Olympic and National team athletes at the United States Olympic Training Center
in Colorado Springs, CO. Jay’s time at the USOTC allowed him to amass hundreds of sessions designed to enhance the performance of USA Olympic and National Team athletes. Jay has also consulted with Denver Area College and High School teams.
Jay’s time at the University of Denver and USOTC has allowed him to study under some of the best minds in the field of Sport and Performance Psychology. Jay has been involved in athletics for as long as he can remember. That passion drove him
to be involved in athletics at the high school and college levels in both basketball and baseball. Those experiences led Jay to understand that each and every day people have to place themselves in the best mental and physical state to perform
and achieve success in their own lives. He desires to help people achieve that success.
He has had the privilege of presenting at the American Association for Applied Sport Psychology Regional Conference on increasing the understanding of psychological pressure in elite athletes. Jay has also presented on his work with athletes with
cognitive and physical impairments.
Jay received his MA in Sport and Performance Psychology from the University of Denver.
Director of Coaching
Katarina has experience working with athletes from all competitive levels, ranging from recreational to elite athletics. Katarina’s experiences vary not only in competitive level but also in type of sport; she has spent time with athletes from
lacrosse, wrestling, soccer, and a JROTC Raider team. She has also served parents and coaches in the form of educational workshops in order to holistically impact their athlete’s performance experience. Katarina also has a developed interest
in high-risk occupations such as firefighter, law enforcement, and military and has served these populations through specialized workshops. As a graduate student at the University of Denver, Katarina spent two years serving on a student executive
board and one year as the board’s Vice President.
Katarina’s own athletic background in cross country and marathon running demanded that she develop her own mental grit and resilience in order to be successful. And her education with some of the brightest minds in psychology developed an understanding
of how to apply and teach that same resilience to other athletes. Katarina is passionate not only about enhanced athletic performance and resilience, but also in the ways those skills can be utilized throughout life.
Katarina received her MA in Sport and Performance Psychology from the University of Denver.
