Profiles in Passion: Julie Dougherty ’12 Mentors and Coaches Student-Athletes

Julie Dougherty ’12 thought she wanted to be a teacher. She got her degree from Marywood in Elementary Education in 2012, but realized towards the end of her undergraduate career that she didn’t want to teach in a classroom. Dr. Mary Jo Gunning, Marywood’s Athletics Director, posed the possibility to Julie’s parents that perhaps the exemplary student-athlete should consider a career in sports administration. Julie, a field hockey standout at Marywood, had not previously considered this type of occupation, but she knew she could apply her solid education knowledge to a sports administration career. “I have so many great memories from my playing career at Marywood,” she said. “One of my favorites comes from my freshman year, which was the first time in 10 seasons that the field hockey team had a winning season. It was an honor serving as a captain of the field hockey from my sophomore year through my senior year, as we returned to the CSAC playoffs two more times.” 

Julie went on to Temple and earned her Master of Science degree in Sports Business. She says that the valuable knowledge she gained as an education major at Marywood applied well to coaching and sports administration—it’s just that the chosen learning experience is different; she is teaching on the field instead of in front of a classroom. While Julie was pursuing her master’s degree, she thought she might want to fundraise for a Division I school, but discovered after several rounds of interviews for these types of jobs that her heart was leading her in a different direction. “I missed field hockey,” she said. This led Julie to seek employment coaching the sport she knew and loved so well. She began working as a part-time Assistant Field Hockey coach at Marywood.

Additionally, Dr. Gunning and Casey Manning, Field Hockey Head Coach, secured an NCAA grant so that Julie could work full-time at Marywood as the Assistant Coordinator of Student-Athlete Affairs. This position, made possible through the NCAA Ethnic Minorities and Women’s Internship Program, allows Julie to work with the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee on campus, which focuses on athletic success, academic achievement, and community service. Their work includes service events and programming for NCAA Division III week. Julie also mentors three Division III student-athletes who are ethnic minorities and/or women in the Immersion Program. She calls the athletes monthly, stays in touch via email and texts, and gives advice on what helped her to find entry-level employment in the sports administration field.
