“My background led me down this path, but ASU Law solidified my future. After making the move to Arizona from Alabama, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do. I had a job in admissions and was telling students which extracurricular activities they could participate in. I thought some of the activities were interesting so I started to look into them. I applied and ultimately enrolled at ASU Law. From day one, Sports Law and Business faculty challenged me to design my personal career plan and brand. The one-on-one mentoring, unique curriculum, exclusive guest speakers, and industry volunteer opportunities laid the foundation for where I am now. I truly feel that I have the tools necessary to reach my goals wherever I go in sports.”
