From competitive Irish dance to soccer, rugby, ice hockey, and even Olympic weightlifting, Maeve Willis infiltrated the world of sport. But she didn’t stop there. Maeve used her extensive athletic experience to build a career in mental performance coaching. Through it all, she was unstoppable, even by traditional expectations of female athletes or her deadly food allergies. Listen now to her amazing story on how her food allergies led her to confidently embrace authentic self expression, and how she uses growth to change obstacles into opportunities.


As a competitive Irish Dancer, Maeve has danced at World Championships twice and North American Championships seven times. Her collegiate career in rugby culminated in a 2013 state championship, and in her senior year of college, she completed her first marathon. She has competed in Olympic Weightlifting since 2018, and currently competes for Team Ireland in Olympic Weightlifting, where she was the 2022 Irish National Champion in the 59 kg weight class.

Maeve is a business owner, performance coach, licensed social worker, competitive athlete, and food allergic patient. Her food allergies include peanuts, nuts, dairy, eggs, mustard, sesame, and shellfish. Food allergies have both been an obstacle as well as a defining part of the path forward for her for her whole life.

You can find her on instagram @_maevewillis and her mental performance business @atgmentalperformance.

What an inspiring episode! There's so much I love and admire about this woman. 'Showing up as the authentic self' --and appreciating the connections between people and whatever invisible challenges we all have-- are going to be my new life's goals. The way that Maeve has faced real challenges in her life and embraced them for what gifts she can find in them is amazing. I also kind of love this idea of a performance coach; why wouldn't we invest in ourselves that way, not just in sports but in anything we love? I feel like everyone could use a performance coach, in any of our most meaningful endeavors. Life is worth that. You're worth that. What a beautiful message!
