Each Wednesday, Bobbi-Sue Doyle-Hazard interviews women in all stages of their careers in the sports industry about their lives, career paths, and passions.

Bobbi-Sue’s goal with each interview is two-fold: Highlight women making their mark on the industry and provide young women with a resource to learn about the varied careers and paths to make it in sports.
