After a 25-year stint in the great Garden State, I packed my bags and brought my talents to Connecticut to work in the Communications department at ESPN. I joined the College Sports team, and support all sports across the board, with a focus on women’s basketball and high school events. I graduated from Seton Hall University (Go Pirates!) with a degree in Sport Management, where I was a triple threat on the basketball court—I sang the National Anthem at games, was on the dance team and served as a student reporter for Pirate Sports Network. I’m beyond thrilled that my journey has led me to ESPN, and look forward to what’s ahead!
