FUN FACT:

In the 5th grade I starred in a middle school performance of Oliver with Anne Hathaway. Well, she starred in it and I was an extra, but there was one scene where we shared the stage.

DEFINING WHAT THE LEGENDS WAY MEANS TO YOU:

To me, “The Legends Way,” means working hand in hand with everyone across the organization at a shared goal. While my direct focus is on the Notre Dame relationship, the broader partnership team has worked collaboratively across the entire organization to drive bottom line success across all properties. That type of collaboration is unique and something that makes Legends a great working environment.

PROUDEST LEGENDS MOMENT:

The successful launch of Notre Dame’s Guinness relationship. To see the excitement and positivity that the launch of this unique partnership had both internally as well as within the broader sports landscape during what has been an extremely challenging time for our country has been very rewarding.
