Please allow me to introduce myself. I am from Brazil and my name is Denise Resende. I have a bachelor degree from Lincoln Memorial University. in Communications and Arts. I have been living soccer since I was a child. As a player I had the opportunity to go the nationals twice playing division II here in the USA and I also played professional in Brazil. In Brazil, I had the pleasure to play against Marta, Cristiane and other amazing players from there. Outside the field I worked with the most elite competitions of the world. In 2013 I worked for FIFA as the coordinator for the volunteer assistants. In 2014 I was invited to work at the World Cup, however because of prior commitment I was unable to accept it at that time. In 2016 I as invited by the Olympic Brazilian Confederation to work as a Training Site Coordinator. I was responsible to make teams and coaches aware of dates, times and places they were practicing or game information. Every job has allowed me opportunities to learn and grow with new challenge. I believe each person has a special gift and I feel mine is communication whether it be on the soccer field or in the classroom, it encourages our difference and our ability to help one another. Nowadays, I am working as an Assistant coach at Union College and I would love to share a little of my experience with your kids and I also learn from you during this summer.
