Coach

Hi I’m Gabriella and I was born and raised in Naples, Florida. I’m currently studying General Biology at Florida Gulf Coast University and hope to do research as well as child education in the future. I started playing soccer when I was about 9 years old and I instantly fell in love with the sport. I remember being so excited before the season started that I couldn’t sleep. For the longest time soccer was the channel for all my emotions and I truly looked forward to every practice and game. I know the impact that this game has had on my childhood and I love being able to impact young children in the same manner. Ultimately, though, what matters most to me is not the game itself, but getting to give these kiddos a space to have fun, learn, and realize they are heard and that they matter.
