Sally Sullivan’s Bio
Sally Sullivan has been involved in many facets of sports: competitor, coach, sales representative for sports equipment companies, attorney/agent; a professor, and curriculum designer of sports undergraduate, Masters, and PHD curriculum.
Sally’s passion for sports began as a competitive tennis player. As a nationally ranked junior and then participant in the Futures Circuit, Sally traveled the world playing tennis. Coaching followed her playing days, having coached in Connecticut, Florida, Texas, Washington, Oregon, and England. After a divorce, Sally decided to apply her expertise and understanding of sports by attending law school and then representing athletes as an attorney with Garvey Schubert & Barer in Washington. Some of her clients were: Venus and Serena Williams (tennis); Lincoln Kennedy (football); Katy Steding, Jennifer Azzi, Pauline and Janine Jordan, Julie Zielstra (women’s basketball) In addition Sally has represented minor league baseball players and Olympic Athletes. Following her attorney/agent career, Sally turned to teaching first with Kaplan, Nova Southeast, Northcentral University, Devry University and soon another online school.
“I enjoyed the agency work, but find that the next phase in my career is to “pay it forward” and help others reach their goals. To that end, I am helping a select group of young athletes break into professional sports. In addition I have recently established The International Institute of Sports Business and Leadership. Phase one of our works is to help online and bricks and mortar schools set up accredited Undergraduate, Master, and PHD programs using our state of the art interactive curriculum. We are in the process of seeking out schools and associations that would like to capitalize on a lifetime in sports, as a competitor, coach, sports business owner, a sports lawyer, and finally a professor and curriculum designer for sports courses. My dream is to create the next group of ethical and diversely talented leaders in the sports industry. www.s2sportsconsulting.com
