So — What Exactly Do You Do?
The simple answer to that question is everything that I am asked and everything that I have a desire to learn. My official title is the Director of Community Relations for our franchise. I also wear the hat of Web Developer, Social Media Manager, Promotions Coordinator, Photographer, and Sales Associate for the team.
I have been with the franchise for going on three seasons and my second year as a full-time staff member. With each year (more like each week) I am greeted with new challenges, new opportunities, and so many stories I can’t keep up with them.
This past season I oversaw all public relations strategies in regards to player transactions, scheduling, and events at the ballpark, the Larry A Pogofsky Cubs/Sox Charity Softball game, the first ever major concert in stadium history, and made national headlines when the team entered into contract negotiation with former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow. It surely was one for the record books!
