Here at the LadyBallers, we may not chat about women who play professional sports much, but we sure do LOVE to chat and highlight women behind the scenes in sports. So, we have a new feature launching this month where we go behind the women working in the sports world and dive deep into their experiences and opinions. Our first lovely lady is going to be Miss Kathryn (Kat) Stuart. So follow her for sure @kstuart and look for her feature coming up in the coming weeks.
Why should you follow her?
She has tons of passion and experience in Sports Management. Receiving her degree at Florida State, she moved on to work for Florida Citrus Sports for 6 years, but still continues to plan events. While there, she planned kickoff luncheons, fan festivals, golf tournaments, worked with the teams, worked for the all-star game dealing with NFL agents and did a whole bunch of other stuff! Marketing, ticket sales... we could go on and on.
But what does she do now that her sports passion still burns? She teaches Sports Management and Operations at Full Sail. The school just added a sports management specialization to their Entertainment Business Masters degree. This is SO SWEET because she taught the very first sports class there. She handles an overview of sports (social media, personnel & facilities management, sports media and careers in sports) and then the students take a Sports Marketing class and a Sport Law class in addition to the other courses in the entertainment business school.
We think it's because you are a strong, intelligent woman who knows tons in sports that men (and women) are just scared to sound stupid. ;o)
So, go follow @kstuart now, and let us know if you have any great sports tweeters you want to see featured for FF or anyone you would like highlighted in our new feature where we go behind the women working in the sports world and dive deep into their experiences and opinions.
