I have always been passionate about growing girls strong. As a mother to two daughters, I have strived to find positive female role models for them and others. When my girls were growing up, I was disappointed in the over the top commitment of activity choices and the lack of positive coaching in many of the programs offered, it was for this reason, along with other passionate women, Premier Poms Experience was developed in 2009.
My commitment to the community and female youth has been ongoing, first as a volunteer in school PTOs, Character Counts Program, Good Shepherd Hospital Gala Committee and Auxiliary, and Girls Scouts. Next, as a founding director of Premier Poms Experience. This was a natural evolution as I consider myself to a be a nurturing person which is why I chose a career as a Registered Professional Nurse.
Recognizing the need for competitive sports to be more balanced; Michele created the C2 Sports Model. This innovative sports team model stresses the ability to be Caring while being Competitive. The ultimate modeling of good sportsmanship. C2 promotes self esteem building with building team unity. This is attained by implementing a variety of techniques to demonstrate compassion for self and others while working hard to excel on the competition floor.
Childhood has an expiration date and I believe that we as parents need to seek out experiences for our children that will benefit them both socially and emotionally today and in their future. I know our Premier Poms program consciously strives to grow girls strong with positive coaching, accountability in kindness, and team cohesiveness not found in most extracurricular activities available today.
I am simply ecstatic to have brought this program to the Barrington area and I look forward to the long lasting effects Premier Poms will have on its members.
Michele lives in Barrington with her wonderful husband Peter and their two inspirational daughters, both former Premier members, Natalie and Nina, who are off at college.
