What was your big dream?
Success was my dream. I though it was being a big city lawyer and I learned it was truly enjoying my life. So when I saw my kids playing indoor soccer I thought, I can do that. I then went to a Holiday party and challenged the women present to join with me, throw caution to the wind and become the Sherborn Sistas soceer team. Two weeks later we were in uniform and on the field.

How did you accomplish it?
Enthusiasm and the belief that you need to try new things.

Where did you find inspiration to get started?
From my husband. He lives every day with incredible passion and the enjoyment he receives is inspirational.
