A.C.E Consulting for Well-Being & NIL!
One-stop comprehensive advising that serves to strengthen your players,
your program and engagement with NIL.

     Active Centralized Empowerment (ACE) is an award-winning praxis and theory that I developed as a way and means for students, companies and individuals to reach their optimal performance by working from their authenticity, who they truly are inside. It is the best of Branding because everything is connected to the best part of an individual. In practice, ACE has been found to increase self-esteem, self-value, confidence performance, and critical thinking and leadership development within a collective. Even more exciting is that this all happens as a student excels academically. These skills can benefit every single student-athlete, with or without a NIL contract, as well as your organization. 

     In addition to using ACE, my advising involves a very special and unique vantage point that many others may not have - an insider perspective as a former elite student-athlete, award-winning university professor, scholar and researcher, and media expert. From my areas of expertise and lived-experience, I am able to review and give a comprehensive assessment and strategic planning for the students’ overall well-being. 

     I work to bring all of the involved voices together as a single, centralized point of advising focused on the ability and capacity of the student-athlete to perform and succeed. Effective storytelling is essential to Branding because it creates community. this means that who you are as a student-athlete, the best you, can connect with appropriate communities and provide long-lasting effects. This is good for you, the community, and your organization and future business endeavors.
