Ivan Tchatchouwo

Founder & CEO 

  • Former collegiate basketball player and team captain

  • Graduated from Columbia University with a Master's degree in Physiology

  • Director of Human Performance for the last 8 years

Ivan's Journey

As a collegiate basketball player, Ivan experienced an injury that ended his junior season. Dropping out of pre-med and using substances to cope, he eventually discovered the college’s sports psychologist who diagnosed Ivan with depression. Seeking support helped Ivan realize he was struggling with an identity crisis.

Throughout this challenging time, he realized:

  • Nobody was opening up about their struggles

  • Many teammates were also struggling behind the scenes

  • Only 2 athletes had visited the sports psychologist in 2 years


Erik Poldroo

Co-Founder & COO

  • Former all-conference baseball player and team captain

  • Member of Concordia College NY's All-Decade Baseball Team

  • Sr. Partnership manager at DynAdmic

Erik's Journey

As a collegiate baseball player, Erik dealt with mental health struggles including anxiety and stress that inhibited his performance on the field and classroom - resulting in a lower GPA and substance use to cope. After being diagnosed with performance anxiety and the yips, he began practicing meditation and mindfulness to improve this anxiousness and help him feel his best.

Throughout this journey, he realized:

  • The opportunity for accessible and private wellness resources was not there

  • Athletes were afraid to open up for fear of losing playing time

  • Staff did not know how to help because athletes weren't opening-up
