SheBelieves and Tournament of Nations with Brazil Women’s National Team
Many opportunities as team staff/liaision assigned by U.S. Soccer Federation on which I became close friends and mentee with many Brazilian coaches as René Simões, Jorge Barcellos, and Vadão and others as well as participating in team training and travel. Games against Japan, USA, Australia, Canda, China, and many others while working with staff (directors, medical staff, conditioning and strength coaches, and physical therapists). Fascinating journey of the phases of the women’s soccer from Brazil and its work with the task force for sport department (ministerio do esporte) in drafting plan for the improvement of the sport.
