I joined ESPN in 2005, the day after I graduated from college. While I have been in the Communications Department since then, I have bounced around in a few different jobs here. I started out answering viewer emails and phone calls, and let me tell you – it was quite a ride. From a Cubs fan who just wanted to complain about how poorly his team was playing, to the fans writing to thank us for our soccer coverage, it was always something new and different. Now, years later, I have grown into the role of a Publicist where I have been able to work on various projects with my talented and passionate colleagues including the 30 For 30 ESPN Films series, the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and our Monday Night Football coverage. Not a day goes by that I am not challenged and faced with a new project or opportunity, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I have grown up in Connecticut, and still marvel that a company like ESPN is based here. My favorite teams are the New York Giants and the UConn Huskies (my alma mater). It’s been very surreal to go back to UConn to work at sporting events there. When I was a student, I never would have dreamed I’d get to be on the other side of those games working for ESPN. When I’m not working at the Worldwide Leader, I can be found traveling as much as possible and also attending live shows and concerts. When I can, I mix business with pleasure by traveling to and working at ESPN events such as the X Games. The best of both worlds!
