Job: Coordinator of Intramural Sports

What was your first job?
My first job was being a soccer referee at the age of 10! I was the most energetic one out there…by far. Little did I know it would actually lead me to where I am today.
How did you get your start in Campus Recreation?
My freshman year of college I realized I needed a job and I was asked to be a referee and I was stoked because I had already done that before. I said “Sign me up!” and it was history ever since.
What do you do for fun?
Fresh out of grad school, I’m still trying to figure out what I like to do because I’m not studying anymore. I love to workout, play Intramural Sports and Netflix is always a must
Who do you admire and why?
I admire my first boss through Campus Recreation, Mike Castaneda. He really got me to understand how this could be a career for me and I’m eternally grateful!
What’s your favorite place to grab a meal in Tallahassee?
Breakfast.. Canopy Road Cafe (Change my mind. I dare you.)
Lunch.. Bento (Poke Bowls are the way to go)
Dinner.. Midtown Caboose (too many sandwiches to count!)
What do you do?
I serve as the Coordinator of Intramural Sports. I work with the Assistant Director of Intramural Sports to offer over 40 sports for the FSU community! My goal is to help our awesome staff of supervisors and officials use this job as a step to where they want to succeed after school.
What does an average day look like?
I’ve just started so it’s a lot of preparation and learning on my end. I like how there is something new going on everyday and everyday is consistently inconsistent. I can’t stand a job just sitting at a desk and this job lets me avoid that!
What’s your favorite part of your job?
The students, hands down! If I wasn’t given the opportunities and challenges I faced as a student, I wouldn’t be where I am. So I hope I can give them the same opportunities and continue to blow me away.
What advice would you give yourself in college?
Focus on yourself and those who are there for you when you fall. Finding the few close friends to keep with you for a lifetime is worth the hassle.
