This week's speaker is:
AYSO Area Director
In 2013, Jen Garrett, made an innocent phone call to find out how to register her child for soccer. What she found out was that there was a great need in our region for volunteers and support to teach kids the game of soccer. Jen became part of the board right away and has been working ever since to help keep soccer active and growing in Fernley.
While Jen swore she would never coach, it quickly became obvious that her child would not be able to play if she did not. Over twenty teams later, coaching is her passion. AYSO has so many opportunities for training that she has also been able to be trained as a referee and many other positions within the AYSO organization in an effort to help grow a love of this beautiful game. Jen has confused many a match by cheering not only for her own players, but for her former players on the other side of the field.
Jen and her husband, Tim, moved to Fernley in 2004. They both grew up in small towns and this one showed all the promise of their own hometowns for raising children. Three children later, Jen works on completing her doctorate in nursing practice in the off season. After ten years as a classroom teacher, Jen left teaching to pursue her love of health and wellness in becoming a nurse. Jen works in Fallon so she can spend her days working with her kids and the other children of the community as a leader for American Heritage Girls, coached for Northern Nevada Aquatics and serves as a club director for Fernley Wrestling Club. Through all of this, AYSO has been a huge part of her life. AYSO has provided her support through many life changes. AYSO also promotes her personal philosophy of volunteerism and inclusion in this and other areas of the community. If you ask her, she has 400 kids playing in Region 370 and she will for a long time.
Jen also serves AYSO as Area Director managing 13 regions over a 500 mile span helping them manage their programs and keep kids on the field in other communities across, northern Nevada, Oregon and California.
