Jay has experience working with athletes and performers at the Olympic, National, College, and High School levels. He spent the greater part of two years working with Olympic and National team athletes at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO. Jay’s time at the USOTC allowed him to amass hundreds of sessions designed to enhance the performance of USA Olympic and National Team athletes. Jay has also consulted with Denver Area College and High School teams.

Jay’s time at the University of Denver and USOTC has allowed him to study under some of the best minds in the field of Sport and Performance Psychology. Jay has been involved in athletics for as long as he can remember. That passion drove him to be involved in athletics at the high school and college levels in both basketball and baseball. Those experiences led Jay to understand that each and every day people have to place themselves in the best mental and physical state to perform and achieve success in their own lives. He desires to help people achieve that success.

He has had the privilege of presenting at the American Association for Applied Sport Psychology Regional Conference on increasing the understanding of psychological pressure in elite athletes. Jay has also presented on his work with athletes with cognitive and physical impairments.

Jay received his MA in Sport and Performance Psychology from the University of Denver.
