Throughout Kerri ’s decade-long career as a Division 1 and professional volleyball player, she has consistently and successfully managed sport-related stressors. Navigating multiple surgeries and numerous transitions has led her to develop unique and effective strategies that enhanced her athletic performance as well as her overall well-being.

Kerri has experienced firsthand how mindfulness and meditation have positively transformed her performance on and off the court, and she wants to share how digestible and powerful Ready Set Mindful’s approach can be for athletes.

She has worked with countless novice, collegiate and professional athletes, both nationally and internationally, in addressing many of the challenges that athletes face throughout their careers.

Ready Set Mindful offers an effective and solution based approach to many of the barriers that individuals face including injury, performance anxiety, transition, confidence and overall stress. 


  • College athletes are less likely to report mental health concerns than their non-athlete peers.

We are in the midst of a true mental health crisis. Depression, anxiety and overwhelming stress are very common in athletes, but these issues are not often addressed due to stigma, shame and the ‘grind it out’ mentality. According to research from the NCAA Sport and Science Institute, 33% of all college students experience significant symptoms of depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions. Among that group, 30% of individuals seek help. But of college ATHLETES with mental health conditions, only 10% seek support. Online therapy makes accessing help easier than ever and our online approach can help alleviate many barriers that keep athletes from getting the help that they need. 

  • 61% of college athletes report daytime fatigue at least 3 or more days a week, according to the NCAA Sport and Science Institute.

Sleep matters for athletes. Poor sleep leads to poor athletic performance, decreased academic performance, risk of injury, along with significant mental health challenges.

Ready Set Mindful works with organizations who want to proactively provide an environment that supports the mental AND physical well-being of their athletes.

Our unique approach to mindfulness training helps athletes transform their relationship with stress and offers the tools needed to elevate their game and overall mental well-being.

Our mindset training includes a combination of techniques including meditation, breath work and visualization exercises. Our specific technique is designed to remove stress from the athletes brain and body at the cellular level to enable them to perform optimally.
