Personal profile

Biography

I joined Coventry University in March 2019 as a Lecturer in Sport Management in the School of Management and Marketing.  Prior to joining Coventry University, I taught at Newbury College, Lynn University, and the University of Miami.  Additionally, I have held positions in the sport industry as both a coach and administrator, most recently working within Player Development at the United States Tennis Association.  I have received my doctorate from the United States Sports Academy in Sport Management with an emphasis in Sport Coaching and a specialisation in Sport Marketing.

Research Interests

My research interests are on sport employability, and on how sport and society impact each other, specifically regarding youth development. My doctoral dissertation focused on further identifying the employability competencies most desired by the major sport leagues in North America. In addition to sport employability, I have been researching how CTE research is impacting American Football as a product, and the impact sport gambling can have on grassroots sport development. I have published works in journals such as The Sport Journal, and the International Journal of Sport and Society, as well as, book chapters within the textbook Sports leadership: A Concise Reference Guide, and Sport and the Pandemic: Perspectives on Covid-19’s Impact on the Sport Industry. I have presented papers at international conferences such as the European Association for Sport Management (EASM), The International Conference on Sport and Society, Commission on Sport Management Accreditation (COSMA), Global Sport Business Association Conference, and the Great Lakes Analytics in Sports Conference.
