Case Western Reserve University Alumni says
When I was 16 years old I confided to my baseball coach that I too wanted to become a baseball coach. He laughed and replied, "No man would ever listen to a woman on a baseball field." Embarrassed but determined, I decided to prove him wrong. As the first woman to coach for a Major League Baseball organization and Founder of the national nonprofit Baseball For All, I will share how I made the impossible, possible and the leadership lessons I learned along the way.

Justine is the first woman to coach for a Major League Baseball organization (Oakland Athletics, 2015) and to throw batting practice to a MLB team (Cleveland Indians, 2011). She founded the national nonprofit, Baseball For All, to provide opportunities for girls to play, coach, and lead in baseball. USA Baseball nominated her as a IOC Woman of the Year and espnW named her an Everyday Hero. She received her Ph.D. in Sport and Exercise Psychology from Springfield College. Justine is the proud mother of a happy and fiercely independent 18-year old daughter.
