Areas of Expertise


Relevant Experiences

I have been working in an NCAA Division I compliance office for the past eight years. Throughout my time, I have overseen NCAA compliance for 14 sports, including women’s basketball. I have given numerous workshops and presentations regarding NCAA rules, primarily eligibility. I have conducted hundreds of transfer evaluations over the past eight years, in all sports. This includes, but is not limited to: reviewing transcripts, identifying which courses will transfer, applying specific NCAA transfer rules, and writing waivers when warranted. Each case is unique due to the institution they are transferring from, how long they have been in school, their GPA, and specific coursework.

Although I have not consulted specifically for law firms, I would be open and qualified to provide assistance with NCAA compliance and injury litigation in the following areas of sport management: action sports, aquatic safety, aquatics, athletics accidents, fitness centers, negligence, pool safety, pools, recreational accidents, risk management, roller skating, skate parks, sporting events, fitness, recreation, and sport facilities, sports injuries, swimming accidents, swimming pools, water park accidents, and water sports.
