For nearly 20 years, as a Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Trainer and Professional Athlete, Kip has assisted individuals, families, coaches, and athletes from grade school level to the NFL to maximize mental and physical potential. Noted for a gentle yet challenging style of communication, she provides an environment focused on true change. Her clients have gone from giving up on life and dreams to achieving more than they thought possible.
She holds herself in that camp as well. In her 40’s, she fulfilled a dream of becoming a professional athlete playing women’s professional tackle football for the 4-time World Champion Dallas Diamonds. She earned her World Championship ring in 2008 playing safety and special teams for the Diamonds. In addition, breaking gender boundaries, Kip served as the first female football coach in the Frisco Football League where her son played for five years.
Back in the day, Kip was a competitive gymnast and a part of two State of Ohio team championships. She holds two state vaulting titles, and regional honors as a part of Universal Gymnasts, Inc. She was inducted into the UGI Hall of Fame in 1978.
Through her company Braincode Corp/NeuroSport™, she uses the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI™), neuroscience, and her years of experience as an athlete, mom, and educator to work with individuals, corporations, universities, families, and coaches to customize training and preparation for stated objectives. No aspect of training goes untouched. Working in collaboration with a client and/or their department, family or team, she assists the facilitation of enhancing physical & mental strengths, while developing pinpointed weaknesses. She provides life skills training including goal-setting, facing adversity, dealing with pressure, and key factors in motivation, cooperation, and constructive communication.
Many times, she admits, she deals with the ‘messiness’ that comes up in life and in relationships. Everyone has some and she is glad to step in and help navigate improvement.
She holds a Master’s degree from Dallas Theological Seminary in Biblical Counseling and a second Master’s in Sports Psychology from Argosy University. She received her undergraduate degree from Texas Tech University in Mass Communications. As a highly regarded speaker, Kip has delivered workshops on such issues as physical & mental performance, conflict resolution & problem-solving, managing versus leading, and fitness, obesity, and eating disorders. Recently, she served as Chair of Be Fit Frisco, the City of Frisco, Texas Fitness & Health Initiative Committee. She is a weekly co-host on the One Life Radio Network heard on iHeart radio and stations around the country including DFW1190AM. She has appeared on the Fox 4 Morning Show, WFAA, CW33, KSCS, KLIF, The Mark Davis Show, The Artie Clear Show, Las Vegas Unplugged, and Cleveland Sports 360.
Kip currently resides in the Dallas area with her two children, 16 and 14. In her spare time, she works with the Life Enrichment Bootcamp program and the Positive Coaching Alliance.
