"The HMSLS program was, and will always be, home for me. The sport administration program and the faculty have had tremendous impact on me professionally, academically and personally. The connections I made through HMSLS have elevated me in my career and have stuck with me to this day. As a result of my coursework, research and graduate assistantship experience in sport management and student-athlete services, I was able to take a full-time role at Bradley University as their Coordinator of Student-Athlete Services following graduation. There I oversaw a large majority of the support services for student-athletes. In 2013, I left Bradley to pursue a similar role at Arizona State University. I've stayed connected to the program by serving on the Sport Management Advisory Board. This role gave me the opportunity to publish my graduate research with Dr. Paule-Koba after completing the program."
