In December 2014, co-founders Corinne and Maria had a conversation about the life opportunities they experienced because of mentors and a support system that believed in them every step of their journey.
They became motivated by a simple question:
“What are we doing to help the next generation?”
Currently the executive director off the winning edge, Corinne is a veteran, former coach, and adjunct professor who has experienced the benefits of mentors and a network of influence. Working as a graduate assistant for Pat Summitt and Tennessee women's basketball team she saw first hand how people can influence the journey of student-athletes beyond the game.
A former All-SEC volleyball player and women's basketball player at the University of Georgia, Maria knows the demands of student-athletes on and off the court. Currently one of the faces for ESPN's College Game Day and college basketball Maria has the platform and experience to provide a positive example for student-athletes.
