Jenna Nobles, Class of 2009
NFL Players Association
Marketing and Events
UNCW Alumni, Jenna Nobles, is using her Recreation, Sport Leadership & Tourism degree to the fullest. She currently holds the position of Marketing and Events Coordinator for the NFL Players Association in Washington, DC. After earning her Bachelor’s Degree Jenna received high recommendations from the UNCW faculty, and went on to complete her Masters in Sports Industry Management from Georgetown University.
“I received so much more than just a degree from UNCW. The school of Health and Applied Human Sciences allowed me to network with industry professionals, gain hands on experience, and build my skill sets before heading into the real world. My advice to young aspiring sports and recreation professionals is to take any opportunity that is offered to you. That’s what I did! I’ve worked for the Washington Nationals, WTA, Global Spectrum, Wilmington Sea Dawgs, and New Hanover High School. As a result, I now work for one of the best companies in sports, the NFLPA. Providing creative marketing solutions for our players and partners is what I love most about my job. The highlight of my career was planning events for the 2013 Super Bowl week in New Orleans. The faculty and students at UNCW are major contributors to my success in the industry. I say with confidence that I wouldn’t be where I am today without those relationships and my education.” – Jenna Nobles
