From the moment I took my first breath I knew that my passion was to work in the sports management field. I was born and raised in Philadelphia and have been surrounded by family that lived and breathed sports. While the game on the field is exciting, after spending time working events for the NCAA March Madness and my current position at DeSales University, I realized the behind the scenes action is my passion and where I want to contribute with an organization like the Brooklyn Nets.
To help fuel my passion, I decided to pursue my undergraduate degree in communications with a concentration in sports management at DeSales University. I learned a great deal in the classroom as well as internships with the Philadelphia Kixx, NCAA Women’s Basketball tournament, and the Commonwealth National Golf Club. I was also actively involved as a sports writer for our school newspaper and contributed with articles such as game recaps, feature and opinion pieces at The Minstrel.
While in college I worked for Commonwealth National Golf Club in member relations where I gained a lot of experience in delivering the best customer service. In the sports industry, fan and sponsor relations are key parts and I know what it takes to deliver the best customer service possible.
For graduate school, I came back to DeSales University to earn my Masters of Business Administration to better help me contribute on the business side of athletics. While back at DeSales, my main job was to develop programming for our students which I did by creating numerous exciting programs. I created a Big 5 Championship that was three different events where students could compete in teams of five that drew over 100 participants at each. My toughest task yet most rewarding, was improving our school spirit across campus. Some of the things I created were halftime competitions, fan seats, team promotions, marketing, advertising and a homecoming week for students and alumni to enjoy.
