ABOUT JARED RICHARDSON
Jared earned his BS in Psychology from Brigham Young University while playing inside linebacker on the football team. After having his football career cut short due to several knee injuries, he found a way to apply his passion for sport in another way and decided to pursue an education in Sport Psychology. Jared is currently finishing his MS in Sport and Exercise Psychology from Minnesota State University, Mankato and has spent the past two years teaching sport and exercise psychology principles to various high school and collegiate athletes and coaches throughout the states of Minnesota and Utah. His knowledge, experience, and expertise as a former athlete and current Mental Performance Coach is a welcomed addition to Riley Jensen Consulting.
Jared is a former state wrestling Champion and All-State Linebacker, but feels that his greatest accomplishment thus far in his life was convincing his wife to marry him. He currently resides in Provo, Utah with his wife, Savannah, and his daughter Charlotte (2).
