was born and raised in Fairfield County, CT where she developed a passion for athletics at an early age.
Football was the first of many sports she played and loved throughout her youth and into adulthood. As a three-sport athlete in high school, Tierney spent most of her time competing but during her free time she discovered her love of coaching. Through high school and beyond, she spent weekends and summers working at her local Boy & Girls Club where she coached and mentored the community’s youth and shared with them her love of athletics.
Tierney’s love of playing and coaching continued throughout her college years. In 2014 she received a B.S. in Business Management from Marist College where she received a scholarship to play 4 years of Division I lacrosse.
Tierney moved to Prague in 2016 to coach the Czech Women’s National Lacrosse Team. Shortly after arriving she found PEFS and fell in love with the kids and the atmosphere.
“PEFS provides a place for kids to get active and have fun, simultaneously learning important values like teamwork and discipline. I am proud to be a part of an organization that encourages equality and diversity in a fun, safe environment for boys and girls from all over the world.”
Learning should be a positive and enjoyable experience for all involved.
Children are active and sociable and learn naturally through movement, play and interactions with each other. The development of sport and motor skills should reflect and promote this.

"In terms of development physically and mentally, sports provide children with tools that carry over into life as an adult. I believe in the importance of not only being involved in physical activities at a young age, but the lessons and values taught through sport. At the Prague English Football School, children are not only enjoying playing games, they're making friends and growing into great kids and that's something I'm excited to be a part of."
