Chicago, Illinois, United States

My name is Candice Beards, I am a recent graduate of the University of Maryland (Go Terps!) now pursing my MBA in sports management at Concordia University Chicago.

I have a passion for sports, ever since I picked up a bat at the age of 6. I was a student-athlete at Maryland and played for the softball team. I learn so much and now am ready to translate that into a career. I am looking to get off the field, and get behind the action and work in a athletic department or on a professional sports team.

My background is in communication, public relations and marketing. But I consider myself a sponge and am willing to learn so much more! I like to think that some qualities cannot be taught. Passion, hard work ethic and leadership are qualities I hold because of being a student-athlete. Though I may not have as much experience as other applicants, my background and quickness of learning due to being a student-athlete, gives me an edge and the motivation to succeed and grow
