While growing up in Floyd, Virginia, playing and watching sports was a passion of mine. I became more interested in sport management as I entered college and was able to turn this interest into my senior capstone project, a successful internship with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits, a minor league hockey team located in Greenville, SC. With my Economics and Business majors as background, I assisted on marketing projects as well as corporate sponsorship initiatives. Emory & Henry has given me the tools and freedom I needed to explore a field that I am interested in and a curriculum that allows me to get college credit for an exciting internship that has already led to a winter job offer.
