Kristin Grey '10 is living her dream of working for her hometown team, the Philadelphia Eagles. She graduated with a B.A. in Hospitality Management with a specialization in Sports Management. Kristin is a Guest Services Coordinator for the Eagles. She is in charge of her own staff and gets to be on the sideline of every Eagles home game.


Grey believes it still hasn’t hit her that she is working for the Philadelphia Eagles.  She never attended an Eagles game before her first day on the job. Imagine working and seeing your first football game from the sideline. Grey strongly believes that sports are a way to escape reality and share a common bond and she feels blessed to be able to give an amazing experience to fans.


Grey credits her professors, Ted Curtis as well as David Schapiro for believing in her from the beginning and always being there to offer her advice when she needed it. She realizes she wouldn’t be in the position she is today without their guidance.


Kristin’s advice to Lynn students today is to take advantage of all the opportunities presented to you. In today’s world you have to go after the job you want and be willing to work for free to get your foot in the door. She lives by a quote from Abraham Lincoln, “Whatever you are, be a good one” and she wants current and past Lynn students to do the same.
