Season 2 Episode 10 Manya Puppione: A Thousand Miles An Hour
In this episode, I chat with Manya Puppione, the head women’s soccer coach at George Mason University! Manya shares her experiences as a player, coach, and wife!
Manya had an amazing playing career, but had to deal with numerous set backs, including injuries. She speaks about those injuries and her continued determination to keep moving forward and trusting in her faith!
Manya’s experiences have made a profound impact on her which has helped her revamp her coaching philosophy. Manya speaks about her awesome parents and her husband, Bobby, and their continual support!
She is constantly looking for ways to learn and grow as a person and as a coach. And she shares how beneficial having a network of friends, family, and coaches/fellow players has been in her success!
I was a throughly impressed with how determined Manya was during her playing days and the reflections and takeaways that she has taken from those experiences.
Also, Manya puts a lot of efforts into projects off the field of play!
