Innovator I Leader I Entrepreneur



I am a Magna Cum Laude graduate from the University of Connecticut, where I was a New England Scholar. In January of 2012, I accepted a position as a Statistics Analyst for ESPN, and maintained my job there while attending classes full-time through April of 2013 when I left to work for MasterCard as a Marketing/Data Analyst during the Summer of 2013. Prior to ESPN, I had multiple internships and was accepted as a member of the inaugural class (’12) of the Manhattan Sports Business Academy. In August of 2014, I will start a position at IBM working in the Enterprise Marketing Performance division as an associate consultant.

I am also involved with multiple Sports Business Associations and Initiatives. I am a consultant for the UConn Sports Business Academy, a consultant for the Sports Business Entertainment Network, and the founder of SportsBusinessU (SBU). Because of my work with SBU, I was named a Rising Star in Sports Business by Sports Networker, a BIG 10 Initiative Winner by the Michigan Sports Business Conference and was named  a winner of the 2013 Sports Launch 30 under Thirty.

I credit my mentors, the people who invested and believed in me, for any success I achieve – namely Mark Zampino, Meghan Hanrahan, Ben Sturner, Chris Chaney, and Rosalyn Durant. Therefore, I place a huge emphasis on actively networking. So please feel free to connect with me by email at, or via LinkedIn.
