I love working with student-athletes in a higher education setting because, not only am I able to help them earn their degrees, I am also able to give them the tools to succeed after their athletic careers are over with. Career, professional, and leadership development within intercollegiate athletics are my passion. GSLD has given me the tools to best further my career, as well as help my student-athletes develop as future leaders. As a previous two time graduate from ETSU, I knew I would receive a world class terminal degree and top notch support. This program has changed my life by making me a better leader and professional. I will forever be grateful to ETSU and Dr. Johnston for affording me this opportunity. Go Bucs!
