Sport Management Graduate Assistant

 

My name is Sydney Brunette, and I am a graduate student pursing my degree in the Master of Science in Sport Management program here at SMU. I am originally from Tyler, Texas and before my time at SMU, I completed my undergraduate degree at The University of Oklahoma (Boomer Sooner) obtaining my B.A. in Public Relations with a Minor in Sport Management.

Within the MSSM program, I am looking forward to learning more about the business of sports and all the opportunities that come from it. I am also excited to create new relationships and unforgettable memories with my cohorts as well as the faculty and staff.

Along with being a Graduate Assistant for the MSSM program, I serve as the Public Relations Intern for Men's and Women's Tennis at SMU. Outside of my time at SMU, I look to continue my career within Public Relations as well as within the sport of tennis.Please feel free to contact me at sbrunette@smu.edu with any question you may have or even just to chat. Pony Up!

Taylor Isom

M.S. Sport Management Graduate Candidate 2023

Sport Management Graduate Assistant

My name is Taylor Isom, and I am a graduate student seeking to obtain a master's degree through the Master's of Science in Sport Management (MSSM) program here at SMU. My current home is Las Vegas, Nevada, and I graduated from SMU in 2022 with a bachelor's degree in Applied Physiology and Sport Management. 

As a Graduate Assistant for the MSSM program I am working towards growing the appeal of the school through a combination of marketing and a freshly proposed digital strategy. This position has also allowed me to become more tapped into the administrative side of the university, where I have grown my network with school faculty and my own student cohort. 

Continuing on from my time in undergrad at SMU, I am still heavily involved with the SMU Ice Hockey Club where I served as President and am now a Graduate Consultant in charge of program partnerships.

Beyond my time at SMU, I am seeking a career in marketing, specifically in the sport of ice hockey where I strive to grow the sport in more non-traditional markets.
