#AtoZChallenge: G is for #GirlsRock (an Interview with Mental Health Care Advocate Kitt O’Malley

The winding roads that unfurl before us. We rode them on this trip to Roanoke, descending from the top of Mill Mountain to the stately St. Andrew’s Catholic Church below. We couldn’t see our destination at first, but took faith in the ribbon of the road down the mountain. For those of you new to… Continue reading #AtoZChallenge: G is for #GirlsRock (an Interview with Mental Health Care Advocate Kitt O’Malley

#GirlsRock: An Interview with Sports Wanderluster Alicia Barnhart

I don’t care for some of the stuff I find in press boxes. Others, I love. Krispy Kreme donuts, for instance. Some places have those! I also love people I meet, like Stacey Dales and Jackie Servais and Alicia Barnhart. Stacey is my favorite NFL Network reporter (and a Coach Daddy reader.) Jackie, a former volleyball… Continue reading #GirlsRock: An Interview with Sports Wanderluster Alicia Barnhart

#GirlsRock: An Interview with Photographer Beatrice Pitocco

I first picked Beatrice Pitocco for an interview on a blog for work. One question into my interview with her, I knew she was a better match for #GirlsRock – my interviews with women who do cool things. Although the tools Beatrice uses as a photographer are inherently technical, that’s not the main element in her work… Continue reading #GirlsRock: An Interview with Photographer Beatrice Pitocco

#GirlsRock: An Interview with Life Enthusiast Britt Skrabanek

Most of us live. Some of us LIVE. Britt Skrabanek is one like this. She’s a life enthusiast, and for the unitiated, that doesn’t mean she runs with the bulls or skydives (without that goofy guide guy strapped to your back, either.) (She doesn’t do those things, but she could.) Britt is classic and new all… Continue reading #GirlsRock: An Interview with Life Enthusiast Britt Skrabanek

#GirlsRock: An Interview With Innovation Project Manager Brandy Macauley

The universe sends some of us on quite the trip through life. I’m not talking about Google Maps’ penchant for sending me into nice neighborhoods when traffic stacks up on Interstate 485. I’m talking about sharp, hairpin turns, the kind that you take on two wheels. The kind that could send you tumbling just as… Continue reading #GirlsRock: An Interview With Innovation Project Manager Brandy Macauley

#GirlsRock: An Interview with Crossfit Trainer Dana Mather

In all of the uniform fitting nights for all of the soccer clubs in America … she walked into the uniform fitting for the soccer club I’d been coaching for. She’s Dana Mather, Crossfit trainer. That night, though, she was Dana Mather, matchmaker. As her sons tried on the club’s new kits, we talked soccer.… Continue reading #GirlsRock: An Interview with Crossfit Trainer Dana Mather

#GirlsRock: An Interview with Healthy Eating Specialist Shannon Bourret

Shannon had me laying on a basketball court, coloring veggies. That’s not easy to do. If you know anything about me, it’s much easier to believe I’d lay on a basketball court, coloring dinosaurs. Or football helmets. Or pictures of pizza. The veggies? That’s the surprising part. Shannon Bourret is Healthy Eating Specialist at Whole… Continue reading #GirlsRock: An Interview with Healthy Eating Specialist Shannon Bourret
