Welcome to Cleats for Cinderella! – a place where femininity doesn’t ride the bench when it comes to careers and sports! This is a place for encouragement, advice, a
nd motivation to survive in the wilderness that is the Boy’s Locker Room (aka – my teams front office!). At Cleats for Cinderella, I will share the hiccups and hail-mary’s, the home runs and the hat tricks, the lessons learned and the road ahead navigating through the sports industry.
Before you get started, let me introduce myself – I’m Kelsey Gilbert. I am a shop-a-holic and southerner. I believe in the under dog and the power of competition. I am all for learning how big I am blessed in the middle of my little mess!
I graduated from The University of Alabama (ROLL TIDE!) with a degree in Exercise and Sports Science in 2015. While at Alabama, I interned in multiple different capacities within the athletic department and cheered the Tide onto two football National championships.
In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering, cooking and traveling to see family and friends. I love to dance (yes! – I can even teach you the Cotton Eyed Joe), wear crimson and white, and my dream vacation is going cage diving with sharks in South Africa.
