Patience is an underrated and under-appreciated virtue in our microwave expert society. It is the attribute that will beget all good things in your career and life. When I think of young coaches who have exhibited some tremendous patience, there is one person that comes to mind immediately, Coach Jamie Lafler.
Jamie has had a long, winding and interesting coaching journey that started as an athletic trainer and has since moved to the private sector where she is absolutely crushing it.
