Maria provided media training to the FSU Football team and spoke to female student-athletes before sharing some time with the FSU Volleyball team.  Corinne and maria also spent some time sharing their story with young professionals working in the FSU athletic department and the womens basketball team.

“Having Maria and Corinne come speak to our players and staff about their success in the world of athletics was tremendous. The Winning Edge Leadership Academy is genuinely making a positive impact on young professionals who desire to get into sports business. The sports world can be difficult to break into. Having mentors like Maria and Corinne, who are truly dedicated to telling their stories and sharing their paths to success, helps encourage and motivate others to do the same.”

“Maria and Corinne were awesome! For them to take the time out of their busy schedules and come and sit down with my team and I meant a lot. They shared great tips and advice that they’ve learned throughout their experiences. Even though it
was my first time meeting Maria and Corinne, I genuinely felt the love right when I walked in the room and really felt that they wanted me to succeed. It’s refreshing to know that there are people out there like them who are willing to help us chase our dreams.”
