Where would you be without sports? A speaker posed this question at recent conference, which caused me to reflect on just how much playing sports contributed to my career success.


I was fortunate to land a management consulting job after college. But as a Psychology major among Business and Finance grads, I felt underprepared, and in over my head. For the first time in my life, I struggled, and failed, and wondered if I belonged. It was truly the skills I had developed through a lifetime of playing competitive sports that helped me persevere. Resilience. Courage. Confidence. Competitiveness.


I fought through the struggles, got coaching where I needed it, and bloomed into a talented consultant. Turning that experience around launched me into a rewarding career in business and talent development.


I know I wouldn’t have made it without the grit I developed through sport.

Research clearly shows that playing sports builds powerful leadership skills. This is particularly true for girls and women. Over half of women C-suite executives played a college sport. Female athletes have enormous leadership and career potential, yet they often face career development challenges given the time and focus they spend on their sport.


That’s why I founded Her Next Play. I’m passionate about helping female athletes translate their athletic experiences into powerful careers. I believe today’s female athletes can be tomorrow’s leaders.


Her Next Play’s mission is to help female athletes confidently launch successful careers. Together we can inspire, develop, and connect the next generation of women leaders.
