S&S Intro Story

May 17, 2018

 

26. Passionate. Driven. Future dog mom. Bookworm. Lover of sports.

 

I know this isn’t a dating profile, but welcome to me. All the nerdy, quirky components that make me who I am.

 

Many of you had a brief introduction to me in December with my guest post, but if you haven’t seen my full story, you can check it out here.

 

I’m a Troy University graduate with a degree in broadcast journalism who fell into athletic communications and fell in love with a career.

 

I’ve been given incredible opportunities from moving up to the director’s chair at Piedmont to sideline reporting with ESPN3.

 

From the outside, it looks like I stumbled into both jobs and they “fell in my lap,” but anyone on the inside knows years of groundwork were laid for both.

I worked at Faulkner University in Alabama as a sports information student intern while in high school and volunteered with a local sports talk radio show. At Troy, I served as a sports reporter and anchor for the student-run television station while also working for the local newspaper as a sports reporter and feature writer.  

I volunteered with the Sun Belt Conference when Troy was the host site for championships, even when I felt I was in over my head with the assigned tasks. Through those connections with the front office staff, when ESPN came calling for a name, mine was at the top of their list as someone reliable and with a solid knowledge of the conference.

 

I earned the title of director of athletic communications after three years as the assistant at Piedmont. While I didn’t feel like I was ready, I’m thankful others saw the potential in me.

Take a chance. Say yes. When opportunities are presented, seize them.

 

Life is full of new beginnings. New jobs, new relationships, new opportunities.

 

When Olivia contacted me about joining the S&S sisterhood, I jumped on it. I couldn’t be more thankful to be brought in to the fantastic group Katie and Liv have compiled.

 

So, here’s to another of life’s new beginnings and revisiting my passion for writing.
