Christian Pulisic Mother
Christian Pulisic’s mom Kelley Pullisic was a standout college soccer player at George Mason under head coach Hank Leung; at George Mason, Kelley and her husband Mark met and started dating. Kelley and Mark Pulisic met thanks to her brother Corey Harlow, who was not only a friend of Mark but also his roommate
“Obviously it is extra special because it is the place where I met my wife,” Mark said. “We look back on those times as time is flying by here and we’re getting older. The distance is greater but the memories are still close by.”
“It is amazing because that is why my husband and I met – because of soccer,” Kelley said. “To have one of our kids follow that same path is pretty cool. Obviously, he has gone way past where we ever went with it.”
Kelley Pulisic was born Kelley Lynn Harlow on March 3, 1971, in Burke, Fairfax, Virginia. She played soccer for the George Mason Patriots from 1989 to 1992; she graduated from George Mason with a physical education degree.
As a Freshman, Kelley Pulisic helped her team reach the NCAA Tournament, earned NSCAA All-Region honors her sophomore year, and was second on the team with five goals and 12 points her senior year.
“Kelley was an outstanding player for us,” Leung said. “I was really pleased we could get her. It was very rare we got an outstanding player who was a local player. That was a huge plus. She was one of my captains and someone you could always count on to get everything done. Anything that needed to be done on and off the field. She was terrific in that sense.”
“Earning a starting spot my freshman year is probably one of the things I’ll never forget,” she said. “You come in as nobody and you have to try to earn your place. That is how I think I live my life. If you don’t have something handed to you, you got to go out and get it. I think it is where it taught me a lot. Just good times. Great memories, great friends that I keep forever, which is kind of more important than anything outside the soccer world.”
In addition to Christian, Kelley is blessed with two older children, Chase and Devyn.
