How did you get involved in sports law?

I’ve been practising various sports since as long as I can remember and was an elite volleyball player while in university in Montreal, where I studied Law. However, sports law wasn’t a topic that was studied or discussed all that much. I didn’t put law and my passion for sports together until later, when I pursued studies in sports management in Lausanne.

Any advice for someone trying to break into the sector?

What benefits / How has WISLaw helped you in your carreer?

It was actually during a WISLaw event that I met my current supervisor, who contacted me a couple of days later to invite me to apply for a Case Manager position that had just opened at the SDRCC !

What do you do in your spare time?

After a couple of knee injuries followed by surgeries, unfortunately I left volleyball behind, but the positive side is that I have since learned to enjoy a variety of new sports: running, road cycling, triathlons and cross-country skiing.

If you weren’t a sports lawyer, what do you think you would be and why? 

I’m happy with this job! I also have an interest in languages, the human body/movement and recently enjoyed a beginner’s course in programming… perhaps a job in any of these fields would have been possible.
