Belief, Empathy, Includer, Positivity, Woo

Angela (Bessolo) Robles has traveled the country consulting with some of the best athletic teams and professional organizations, introducing them to the strengths philosophy. Most recently she has worked with collegiate athletic teams at Washington, Arizona, Harvard, Cal State Fullerton, UC Davis and Pacific. She has been certified as a “Strengths Advocate” through the Gallup Organization and continues to develop research on strengths in sport. Her depth of knowledge in the strengths philosophy combined with her athletic background has enabled her to consult with teams at all competitive levels.

Angela is a former pitcher for the University of Notre Dame and collegiate coach. After college, Angela had the opportunity to play professionally in Italy. Her international experience also includes coaching and leading softball clinics with Athletes in Action and Competitive Edge International in Venezuela, China and Mexico.

Family has always been incredibly important to Angela. As the oldest of four children, she and her siblings were all Division I college athletes. Through college rivalries and sibling competitions, her family remained one of her greatest sources of inspiration. In what she would call her "most cherished role" to date, Angela enjoys being married to David Robles, and caring for their two young daughters. Together they enjoy living in Orange County, California.
