Miami’s most influential and successful women will celebrate philanthropy and service to community at the 19th annual Women United Breakfast on March 12, 2020. Held at the Watsco Center at the University of Miami, the event is presented by Leslie Miller Saiontz and features Jill Ellis, head coach of the U.S. Women’s National Team.
Ellis is widely hailed as the best in the history of the sport. She led the USWNT to historic back-to-back FIFA Women’s World Cup titles in 2015 and 2019. Through unbeaten campaigns in 2016 (22-0-3) and 2018 (18-0-2), Ellis guided the USWNT into being one of the most successful teams in the world. The team entered the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup ranked No. 1 and won all seven games during the tournament – five of which were played against some of the best teams in Europe – to win the most competitive Women’s World Cup in history.
Ellis was the first American named FIFA World Coach of the Year and is currently the only female to hold the United States Soccer Federation Professional License for coaching. Previously, Ellis held numerous positions with the United States Soccer Federation. She also served as head coach of the UCLA and University of Illinois women’s soccer teams.
