Mentoring Objectives & Scope

My main objective is to give you an honest and clear perspective into the sports industry. I'd love to provide support as you interview, grow, network, and learn. Happy to be an extra set of eyes on your resumes, cover letters, and projects!

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

For anything virtual, I am pretty flexible! If in-person is an option, I'm always in to grab a coffee in the Seattle area. My favorite spots are Tougo Coffee and Coffeeholic House.

Additional Information

I worked in sports for the last 5 years. Throughout my time in sports, I've worked in a variety of departments including operations, youth programs, community, partnership activation, and analytics. I'll try to provide a holistic view of sports - there are so many areas to be involved in!
