Prior to attending Florida State University, Kathleen Smith lived in New Smyrna Beach, FL. While pursuing a degree in sports management at FSU, she lived in the Polk Scholarship House from 2012-2015 where she enjoyed her time as an Ambassador.

Kathleen’s goal was to work in college athletics, and since graduating from FSU, she has worked with the NCAA in Indianapolis, at the University of Memphis, and Texas Tech University where she is currently the Assistant Director of Ticket Operations.

For Kathleen, “SSF allowed me to graduate undergrad debt-free and gave me the tools to pursue an MBA financially. I learned so much about relationship building with people from different backgrounds and learning how to interact and socialize with people from different places in the world!”
