  • CaraMia Tsirigos '13

    Alumni spotlight: Q&A with CaraMia Tsirigos ’13, digital specialist for Nike

    Share a little about your story- what experiences or opportunities led you to your current role?
    After completing my career as a student-athlete playing softball at Indiana University, I decided to pursue a master’s degree in sports industry management at Georgetown University. While there, I worked three jobs: at the local Nike retail store, as a social media intern at an editorial startup SportTechie, and as a hitting instructor. I had always had big dreams of working in sports and hoped one day it would lead me to Nike corporate. When the MLB All-Star Game came to D.C., I volunteered with the hope of networking myself into a job in baseball. As luck would have it, my introductions lead me to take a job at Blast Motion, a sports tech startup in southern California. After almost three years at Blast Motion and a boss who pushed me to expand my social media skills into digital marketing and branding, I landed a job with my dream company, Nike. Life is funny that way. You can make all the plans you want, but I would not be where I am today without the support of my family, my friends, and my faith.

After graduating from the University of Richmond, I knew I wanted to stay involved in the world of football and leave a lasting impact like the men before me did. After working for a few years in various areas of college athletics like events, operations, and recruiting, I received the opportunity to be a graduate assistant coach for the football team at the University of Virginia. After earning my master’s degree this fall, I hope to take my experiences to full-time coaching.

    Share a little about your story- what experiences or opportunities led you to your current role?
    After graduating from Wesleyan in 2008, I started at the University of Florida (UF) where I was a member of three SEC championship volleyball teams and went to four NCAA Sweet 16s and one NCAA Elite 8. We had seven freshmen on the team during my redshirt senior year, and part of my role as captain was getting them acclimated and accustomed to our system. During that year, my coach told me that I would make a great coach someday, and I promptly told her I would never put my livelihood in the hands of 17-to-23-year-old women.
