Kelli Donahue, MA
- Lecturer, Sport Management
- Associate Program Chair, Sport Management
Much of my professional attention is focused on assisting our undergraduate students in their internship, job, and graduate school searches as they write their resumes and other application materials, and prepare for interviews. To best assist our students as they pursue their professional goals, I am committed to keeping in contact with industry professionals, particularly our own Sport Management alumni, in order to advise our current students on how to best prepare themselves for their professional endeavors. In addition, I actively study various types of public speeches and addresses, the contexts in which they are given, and the organization and delivery of the speakers’ intended messages. I apply my studies to my classroom instruction as I assist my students and our Kinesiology international graduate students as they develop their speaking skills. I also consult in speech writing both in and outside of the classroom. One of my favorite annual events is our Kinesiology Commencement, which includes student speakers who I assist in the writing and rehearsal of their speeches. It is a pleasure to watch them deliver their speeches to their fellow graduates, families, and Kinesiology faculty and staff at this momentous occasion.
