Women Who Inspire-Charli Turner Thorne
Charli Turner Thorne is the Arizona State Sun Devils head women's basketbll coach. She is the winningest Sun Devil coach since the team was established.
Turner Thorne asked for a 9 month sabbatical from coaching that was totally unprecedented. She took an inventory of her personal and professional life and took that time to work on being a better coach. She read, studied and learned how to be a better coach. By month 8 she was chomping to get back to coaching.
Why she inspires: Be sure to give yourself the luxury of doing a "gut check" when your life seems out of balance.
