Manager, Human Resources
U.S. Soccer Federation
Please share a bit of background about yourself.
I am from Wisconsin, Go Pack Go! I graduated from UW Oshkosh with my Bachelors of Business Administration majoring in HR. Most of my HR background has been in Hospitality and I was lucky enough to fall into the Sports Industry in 2020. With my short time at U.S. Soccer, I have fallen in love with the fast pace and high energy of the Sporting Industry!
What do you love about your current job?
What I love about working in HR is the variety of work and no day is ever the same! I am constantly in awe of my coworkers and their passion for soccer and growing the sport. I learn something new everyday from the amazing group of people I am lucky enough to work beside and support.
When did you realize this job was the right fit for you?
I knew Human Resources was my calling when I saw the direct impact I had on others. One of my favorite sayings is people may not remember what you said or what you did, but they will always remember how you made them feel.
What is one piece of advice you wished someone had told you before starting this career path?
Take every opportunity that is given to you. Be a sponge and learn everything you can from other professionals and teammates. Build strong relationships and connections along the way. You will never know when paths will cross and who you can tap into for a resources!
