Tackling “Another Part” on Thursday
"I am so honored and blessed to be given the opportunity to join the McNeese Athletics family. The atmosphere here in Lake Charles is electric and it just draws you in. You can’t help, but want to soak it all up. Marketing and Sports have always been my passion. Put them together and what do you got… DREAM JOB! As the Marketing Assistant, I have an incredible opportunity to learn from some of the best in the business. Louisiana Tech was my home for a while and I used to Bleed Tech Blue, now I Geaux Blue! Tech gave me the foundation I needed to get my career off the ground and for that I will be forever grateful.
Week One – Complete! My first days here at McNeese were amazing. The staff has welcomed me in with open arms and has made this transition smooth. I can already tell that here you are not just some number, you have a name and people care about the person behind the name. Right out of the gates I was given so much more responsibility then I had previously ever been given. The amount of Marketing I am being exposed to is more than I could have asked for. I’m learning new tips and tricks to help me along the way. I have been given a unique opportunity though to not only get to specialize in Marketing, but other fields as well. I am learning all about the Tickets and Game Day Operations side of the ball. Getting acquainted with the ticket software was like looking at a foreign language at first, but I have slowly gotten the hang of it and even sold my first set of season tickets! This job is about always learning and adapting and I cannot wait for this year to get into full swing.
I have been given this unbelievable opportunity to further my career and I intend to take full advantage of it. One of my favorite quotes is, “Don’t limit your Challenges, Challenge your Limits”. I fully expect this year to have many challenges, but I thrive off the pressure and expectations. I hope to grow as a person and in my career in many ways while I am here. When I leave these doors for the last time I hope I can look back with no regrets and no fear of what my future holds!”
