Meet Our Team
Sarah has also found that every time she coach a girl’s team, she is able to connect on a deeper level with the athletes as she understands the unique experience it is to be a female athlete growing into a young woman. It is this knowledge and experience that she is excited to share with other female coaches and athletes through the reach of Girl Boss Sports. Sarah is also a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) which has given her knowledge around learning theories, child development, and mental health that have increased her skills in the coaching realm as well.
Currently, Sarah also plays for the Oregon Ravens Professional Tackle Football Team. As a current professional athlete herself (and former semi-professional soccer player), Sarah is able to relate to the athletes she works with on a different level.
All of this combined with her 26 years of experience playing the beautiful sport of soccer have led her to where she is today – making an impact on the world by changing the life of one girl at a time.
Mandi is an NASM certified personal trainer and Performance Enhancement Specialist, and plays indoor soccer multiple days a week primarily at the positions of midfielder and goalkeeper. She has been a gameday volunteer with the Seattle Reign/Reign FC since 2016, serving on the stretcher crew, retail, and game day field and stadium set up positions.
She loves coaching for the opportunity it gives her to share everything that she learned, not just from soccer but also from figure skating and personal training. Sports are about preparation, dedication, and fun. Even when learning skills that are daunting or that may not be your favorite, it’s important to find ways to keep your mind and body engaged and connected to the joy of sport.
Sylvie created Stronger Together a Marketing and Branding agency to help develop women’s sports by giving solid tools and more exposure to female athletes and teams and to help companies such as Girl Boss Sports to change the status quo.
Sylvie started playing soccer as a kid in the south of France. She was the only girl among boys, but despite that she was the most physical player on the team. She was made team captain during all her career due to her tremendous leadership ability. She remembers her dad telling her to choose another sport as there was no future for girls in soccer, but she decided to follow her passion nevertheless. Since then, she has faced even more adversity as a woman playing football, a sport that is also typically seen as one solely for men.
In 2012, Sylvie fell in love with American football, has played 10 seasons internationally and currently is a quarterback and safety for the legendary DC Divas. Sylvie is fuelled by all the positive impacts sports can have on people and society. She was a Head coach and Offensive Coordinator for high school football in Paris and was amazed by how the future generations of men are inspired and look up to female coaches. The future is bright!
Taylor brings a strong business and operations acumen, as well as a background of being a life-long athlete herself. She started playing sports at age 3, and has been a multi-sport athlete for most of her life, but focused on basketball through elementary and middle school. She also started training in Taekwondo (Korean martial art) when she was 12, and by the age of 16 was a black belt competing at the Junior Olympics (where she would become a double gold medalist), so elite sports training is no stranger to Taylor. She also played collegiate soccer in South Korea at Yonsei University, and continued playing semi-professionally when she moved to Seattle in 2016. She now plays professional women’s tackle football for the Oregon Ravens in the WNFC.
Being in the sports world for almost 25 years, Taylor has realized the gaping divide between male and female athletes and their coaches and trainings, and jumped at the opportunity to combine that background with her business knowledge to help forward the fight of Girl Boss Sports. She hopes that she can support Girl Boss Sports to give girls of this generation the opportunity to compete on an equal playing field that she could only dream of when she was young.
That 14-year-old girl went on to continue to play basketball through her high school career, lettered in softball, played flag football in college, and is currently the quarterback and captain of the Oregon Ravens Women’s Tackle Football team. She also never forgot the impact that the strong, female role models had made in her life, so she became a coach as well; for the first time as a junior in high school and continues to this day. It wasn’t until she started coaching girls that she realized the impact she could have on the future. She saw herself in the girls she was coaching and wanted to give them the best shot at success.
Katrina Guerra joined the Girl Boss Sports team because her passion for sports and empowering the future generation of female athletes is directly in line with the mission of the company. She has finally found a place where she could do something she loves with an amazing group of women that have the same passion. She cannot wait to see how she can be the positive change for girls and women around the world.
As an OUT and PROUD transgender athlete, Erica also serves as an Athlete Ally Pro Player Ambassador for Athlete Ally, an organization that is on a mission to end the rampant homophobia and transphobia in sport and to activate the athletic community to exercise their leadership to champion LGBTQIA+ equality. Having done numerous question and answer discussions with classes at universities in Oregon as well as serving as a guest panelist for the recent Pacific Northwest Coaches Summit that was held in the Tiger Woods Center at Nike’s campus in Beaverton Oregon, Erica has proven through her leadership and tireless activism that she is the right GIRL BOSS to lead our company in our quest to be the best experience for our athletes and coaches when it comes to equal opportunities and inclusivity.

Hannah has recently finished graduate school at the University of Washington with a Master of Communication in Digital Media. Her focus is to become competent in superb storytelling practices that engage both online and offline audiences to effect change.
In Hannah’s spare time, she enjoys volunteering for different organizations. One of her favorite roles as a volunteer would have to be working on the stretcher crew for OL Reign. This entails being on standby during matches, ready (with a stretcher) to carry any injured players off the field. Hannah always tells people that as long as she doesn’t have to do her job, she’s doing a good job.
Equality and inclusion should be a given in our society. Unfortunately it isn’t. Hannah. believes Girl Boss Sports is a leader in leveling the playing field. She is constantly inspired by what Girl Boss Sports does and is excited for what the future holds for this awesome organization.
