Introduction

After beginning my career in Sports Management in Australia, I traveled to the United States to gain exposure to sport on a higher scale, and was interning at Excel Sports Management in New York. Excel is a full-service sports management and marketing agency which represents some of the top athletes in professional sports today, including the NBA, MLB and PGA . Most recently in Australia I was employed on a full-time basis at Basketball Australia as a Marketing Assistant. In this role, my main responsibilities included sponsorship account management, league and player marketing and major event coordination. Whilst working with Basketball Australia I was consistently required to deliver my work to strict deadlines, and showed high organizational and time management skills. The positive feedback I received from these tasks also demonstrates my attention to detail. Academically, in 2010 I successfully completed a double degree in Sport and Exercise Science/Commerce, majoring in Sport Management. During my study, I also completed work experience at a number of sporting organizations including the Australian Football League (AFL). These positions all required different management skills and developed my ability to work under pressure in both office and event settings.
