Career summary:

Following graduation, I worked for the National Basketball Association (NBA) Alumni Association as their membership coordinator working with former NBA and Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) players. I then became marketing and communications manager for the National Basketball Retired Players Association (NBRPA).

I transitioned to Under Armour to join their Global Philanthropy Team, where I am a community impact associate. In this role I manage and develop Under Armour’s grants, and teammate volunteerism. This includes management, execution, and monitoring of processes related to the grants awarded by Under Armour to community-based organizations. Additionally, I work cross-functionally across the brand on the strategy and execution of community-oriented activations for campaigns, athletes and events.
