Joining MSBA as a Mentor has been one of the greatest experiences in my career as the rewards are two-fold. As part of a Mentorship Collective, you work closely with your student to help them navigate this fast-paced and demanding industry where relationships last long after summer ends. At the same time, you have the opportunity to lean on your collective team for guidance and support. I wish this program had existed when I was graduating college, as it’s an amazing network of professionals that quickly become family. I look forward to continuing to grow with MSBA.

MSBA provides an amazing platform for young professionals eager to give back to our industry's rising stars. The Mentorship Collective structure not only ensures student growth, it also provides me with the opportunity to build relationships with my own peers within the ever-growing MSBA Community.

It is said that a person is a reflection of their circle and that strength is defined by a person's ability to positively impact others. Nowhere is the personification of this statement more true than through the opportunity that MSBA affords its participants. Having had a past career in education, I thoroughly enjoyed a return to mentorship and learning through my service to my Mentee. Seeing his drive, fearlessness, and willingness to learn, I am confident in the future of the industry that MSBA is helping to build one relationship at a time.

MSBA is a fantastic program that offers aspiring sports business professionals a well-rounded experience in the various aspects of our industry – key to a young person’s career development. As MSBA Mentors, we not only have an opportunity to connect with our peers (other Mentors), but we start to build relationships with future colleagues and leaders in our industry. If I am asked to participate as an MSBA Mentor in future years my answer will definitely be yes.
