My name is Ken Simonds and I have lived in the Coachella Valley area for the last 27 years. This is where I met my wife of 20 years and where we have raised our four children. I have been a lifelong basketball coach at the high school and community college levels as well as worked as an athletic director and sports information director for community colleges. I love working with and watching athletes develop and realize their potential. I also enjoy coaching my kid's sports teams in my spare time and traveling with the family. Vertical Raise provides a platform that allows me an opportunity to help coaches and leaders provide for their participants. In return, this will help participants reach their goals.
