Ask a Business Administration and Kinesiology Alum: Casey Hertel '11

Growing up in Rocky Ridge, Maryland, Casey Hertel ’11 was active in sports, but never considered it as a possible career. However, during Hertel’s junior year at Shenandoah University she decided to pursue a focus in sport management while also majoring kinesiology. “During my time at Shenandoah University, I was always encouraged by the faculty to push myself and never hold back,” said Hertel.

After graduation, Casey attended Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., where she earned a master’s degree in sports industry management. During her time at Shenandoah and Georgetown, Casey participated in many different internships with General Dynamics, DC United, the President’s Council on Fitness Sports and Nutrition and the United States Olympic Committee.
