This morning, I woke up and made a quick Starbucks run for some espresso. Andrew was working from home today. I like when he is home. While he worked, I got started on my ethics paper, but I realized it wasn’t coming so easily to me. I decided to shove it away for a while.
Around 12pm, I got ready for my meeting with Chris King, Director of Athletics for Robert Morris University. I was going to meet with him and talk to him about his leadership philosophy and see if he had any advice for me as I attempt to break into the world of athletics. I was excited for my meeting with him. I arrived to campus a little early, and stopped at Romo’s, a café on campus. I ordered a French caramel latte with soy milk. I loved French Caramel Lattes when I was a student there that was my go to drink of choice. I stopped by John’s office to connect with him for 5 minutes.
Then I made my way to the arena for my meeting. I wasn’t all that nervous. I have spoken to him before at the CLA dinner. I didn’t want to ask him the same questions that he was asked at CLA. I didn’t want to waste his time, but I wanted to get in his circle and make that professional connection.
The meeting went so well. We had nice conversation about leadership, culture, and how important is to embrace the culture and not try to change it. He also put me in contact with Chelsea, so I could help with game day events. I am so excited for this opportunity and to be a part of my alumna mater.
