"I moved my family from California to Florida when Paula was 14 years old, to take full advantage of the superb coaching and training teams at the Academy. But when I wanted to start learning more about the business side of sports management, marketing, promotion, etc., I turned to Ted Meekma. His ‘open door’ policy was an invaluable resource to me, time and time again. I will be forever grateful for his wise and objective counsel. Ted was always aware of the delicate balance between aspiring to be a successful athlete, and all that comes with being a young teenager. I always felt Ted's input was based on what was best for Paula as a person first, which was very comforting and appreciated as a parent."
