Summer is finally here, but that doesn’t mean the hustle stops!  I know - all too well - just how difficult it is for young professionals making their way and starting out in the sports & entertainment industry. It’s certainly not always easy, but it is definitely worth it. I faced countless obstacles and rejections for years as I was coming up; but I was sure to never let anything diminish my goals and had an unwavering commitment to succeed.  I can confidently tell you it was worth every challenge along the way.


For these reasons and more, part of my guiding objective as a sports executive is to value and support the next generation of youth.  We created this newsletter as a resource, hoping to make the process easier for young professionals getting started, as well as to help those already along their journey to chart a course towards continued success.

I am [also] very proud and thankful that (the program) has helped me to collaborate with an academic partner to measure the impact of our programs at Garden of Dreams."
