A post shared by Joey Lye (@joey1ye)

A dual-sport collegiate athlete, she was a four-year letter winner in both softball and ice hockey at Williams College. She went on to earn her Masters in Coaching and Athletic Administration from Concordia University Irvine.

Lye started playing softball at age seven but almost quit the sport when she was 12 but a coach convinced her to give it “one more year.”

Her talk focused on mental awareness. Lye challenges the audience to practice noticing their thoughts, create routines, use anxiety as a tool and choose a mindset.
