Meet the Follow Your Spirit team

Timothy Lawson – Tim founded Follow Your Spirit in January of 2016. After a discussion with Joanna Lohman, he decided to create an outlet dedicated to the Washington Spirit. Tim hosts the podcast, shoots and edits video, and occasionally writes feature pieces.

Jordan Small – Jordan joined the team at the beginning of the 2016 NWSL season. She offered to contribute to the site and was a great fit right away. She’s currently a college freshman at The College at Brockport. Covering the beautiful game

Kelley Piper – Kelley is the team’s photographer. She became interested in photography as a serious hobby after using a point-and-shoot camera at the USWNT qualifiers for the Rio Olympics (and being disappointed with the results). Since then, with the help of better equipment and many hours of online photography classes, she’s slowly learning the art of sports photography. While she’s always trying to get that great action shot, she’s mostly interested in trying to capture the emotion of the game. Kelley supports her photography and soccer habit by working as a web application developer. Her photos can be seen on her website at kpiper.smugmug.com.

Monica Esenwein – Born and raised in Western PA, former assistant softball coach at San Diego City College. Overall sports lover.
