NE Seattle Soccer Coach

Liz Han

Liz started playing at the age of 7, and although she was dragged to her first practice, she quickly fell in love with the sport and is greatly thankful for that.

She played club soccer for Seattle United all through middle and high school until she was eventually recruited by Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and received a degree in neuroscience and a minor in biology.

Playing soccer in college was one of the best decisions of her life, as she was able to continue her love of playing while also building a strong community among fellow student athletes. At Macalester, she got to experience first-hand the strength of some incredible female coaches who pushed her as a player, and leader, on and off the field. During her time with Macalester she also played about every position on field, aside from keeper, which gave her the opportunity to learn the different aspects of each position. Her first job in high school was with Lil’ Kickers, a soccer and developmental program for young kids. Through this job she coached kids from as young as 18 months old to 10 years old.

Outside of soccer you can find her working mind solving puzzles, hiking, and exploring parks around Seattle. Post-grad she is planning on pursuing a career in physical therapy and is planning to apply to grad school in the next couple of years.

Jess Allen

Jess started playing at the age of 4 where she quickly became a player that all parents and coaches kept an eye on. In high school she was the only Freshman to make the varsity squad. After her Freshman year she moved to Florida where she tried to keep her sports going but unfortunately fell into a slew of injuries (4, to be exact) on her left knee that had doctors telling her it was best to just stick to biking and swimming.

When she moved back to Seattle in her mid 20s, she sought out a trainer to help her get back into the shape of her younger years. Her trainer helped her lose 70lbs, regain her strength, confidence, and most importantly the ability to play sports. She is a prime example that you should never give up regardless of your circumstances, and if you put your mind to it you can get back to where you were before.

Generally, you can find Jess on the flag football field throwing and catching balls, and occasionally popping up on the turf to play soccer.

Tanner Hiner

Tanner has been surrounded by soccer her entire life. She often jokes that it is a religion in her family as almost everyone of her aunts, uncles and cousins have played. Her first memory of soccer is sitting in the back of her mom’s car watching her brother play and wanting to be out there too, not really knowing what that would entail.

Finally at the age of 5 she got to join in the fun and fell in love with the game. This passion created a life full of hard work, love and dedication to the beautiful game. While soccer was her main sport she also decided to play basketball and run track, not just to stay busy but to be a well rounded athlete.

“Soccer taught me many things in life. When you think you have nothing left to give, trust there’s always a little more if you dig a little deeper. My heart was always left on the field because I gave a 110% every time whether it was a practice or game. Soccer isn’t just a sport, it’s a way of life. The lessons and skills you learn are often transferable into everyday life.”

Meet Our Team

Administrative Team

CEO & Founder

Sarah Wolfer

Sarah started this company because she is passionate about women supporting women, leadership, and the many benefits of sports – and here at Girl Boss Sports she was able to combine all three! She has been a soccer coach for 16 years now and has consistently found a lack of female coaches no matter the geographic region where she has coached. Research shows that this is not just an issue in the sport of soccer, but across most others as well! This is an area Girl Boss Sports makes a difference in through recruiting passionate female coaches and athletes and providing training and ongoing development for all Girl Boss Sports coaching staff.

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.

Marketing & Graphic Design Director

Paula Chiarotti

I decided to join Girl Boss Sports because, as a very energetic person, I’ve always practiced all sorts of sports since I was little and throughout my experiences I can count on less than one hand how many women coaches I had, but I can't even begin to count the many uncomfortable situations with male coaches.

Outside of that, I have always worked in mostly male dominated environments and was constantly dismissed, looked passed or talked over, I’ve given up jobs because of those situations. So the reason why I was interested and wanted to be involved in the GBS project is because the world needs it, companies need it and most of all, little girl athletes need role models, and little dude athletes need to see and respect women as authority figures outside their moms. Giving kids that role model and allowing companies to learn from their mistakes is a great step towards a better and more equal world, and I so very much want to be a part of it.

I have a bachelors in social communication, emphasys on advertising and side on audiovisual production. I also have an MBA in Strategic marketing and competitive environment. I’ve worked a lot with event planning, fashion producing (runways, editorials, teaching models how to walk, pose or behave in a dressing room), worked as marketing manager for a group of real estate companies, as well as for a investment management company and now I’m at an amazing RP agency as their digital marketing manager.

Outside of the “work” life I also helped to found the first (and only) female full tackle american football team in my state the Brasilia Pilots and I am part of the board for one of the top 3 male american football teams in Brasil, the Tubarões do Cerrado, at the moment as their president, the first ever female to take the position.

I am, as I like to say, a “nerdy jock glamazon”. I love movies, books, fashion, comedy, road trips, dancing and/or just chilling doing nothing. I currently practice american football as a defensive end, do crossfit, track and, obviously, the gym.

Some fun facts about myself include:
I have worked for Cirque du Soleil
I am going to be part of the first professional women’s football league, the WFLA, playing for the AMAZING Phoenix RedTails
I’m Brazilian (dont think i mentioned this before lol)
I’ve played an entire season with a torn ACL
One of my fav shows is RuPaul’s Drag Race

With that in mind we are proud to announce that Erica Meacham has signed on to our team and will be serving as our Manager of Equity and Inclusion!

Chief Operations Officer

Jennifer Christmas

An avid student of the beautiful game, Jennifer Christmas has played soccer since the age of 6; from recreational to club, she eventually went to play college soccer at St. Mary's University, San Antonio, Texas where she earned her Bachelor's of Business and Administration.

Jennifer worked 11 years for Ford Motor Company in various marketing and sales roles, eventually ending her career with Ford as the Global Consumer Experience Manager. Throughout her college and professional career she dedicated time to volunteer with youth in leadership camps and soccer coaching.

Jennifer virtually coaches with Girl Boss Sports, is the captain of a women's soccer team and is an elected member of her local library, Wells Branch Community Library Board of Trustees.

Jennifer joined the Girl Boss Sports team to help support women coaches as well as young female players. The skills she gained as a soccer player were the foundation to work and be successful in the male dominated automotive field. She believes that sports can help all youth, but specifically young women be better people, leaders and team players for future board rooms; one place to start is to put more women coaches in place to lead and inspire.

Special Team - Marketing

Sylvie Aibeche

Sylvie has had successful career as a business consultant and a marketing executive for more than 10 years across many industries. She wants to spend her life with purpose and have an impact on the world and decided to bring her strong business background to Girl Boss Sports to help women’s sports to thrive, empower the future generation of women, and set up positive female role models for girls but also for boys.

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 is also the website & graphic designer, videomaker and content creator for Girl Boss Sports.

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!
