What others are saying about Giordana....
““I am proud to have worked closely with Giordana both coaching and educating young players in the art of our beautiful game. As someone who has been deeply involved in the game for over half a century, as a high level player, referee and youth coach I have worked with a number of compatriots and would place Giordana very high on the list of the very best. Her understanding of the total requirements of the game and what it takes to rise to the highest level becomes obvious very soon after you meet her and watch her work. During our time working together I was able to see and appreciate her innate ability to pass on her love for the game, and the understanding that coaching and educating goes far beyond teaching just running, kicking and dribbling around a set of cones on the ground. At the highest level it’s a total commitment involving the whole package, physical fitness, mental awareness, nutritional requirements, basic soccer skills and much more and she brings this all to her work. It was a pleasure to work alongside Giordana and I am happy to recommend her to anyone who is looking for the whole package.””

“"Your gentle urging to consider several needed changes to my diet and encouraging me to make health and fitness goals have helped me realize a definite improvement in my health state of mind. I feel physically better thanks to better diet choices, and by assuming a structured exercise plan resulting in a weight loss of over 12 pounds in 6 weeks time. I hope God will lead other folks such as myself to you who might have good intentions to do something, but simply need someone who can give a gentle nudge to get them going."”
