Maurice Nelson, President/Founder
Maurice founded Suited for Life in 2009. As a young man growing up in the west end of Louisville, KY, he longed for a positive alternative to the negative influences that were ever-present in his community. He desperately wanted to escape the grip of drugs, crime and poverty that had engulfed the inner-city generation after generation.
Later he received the opportunity to take control of his destiny and escape his environment by receiving a basketball scholarship to Northeastern State University in Oklahoma. Maurice continued on to play professionally in Europe. In May 2017, he earned a M.S. degree in Rehabilitation Counseling and is currently under supervision as a Licensed Professional Counselor. Maurice always wanted to stop the cycle of youth focusing all their efforts on sports and not on education and a career path.
