Women Leaders Podcast

Feb 18, 2018

Patti Phillips talks with Amy Huchthausen, the commissioner of the America East Conference. Amy’s been a leader all the way back to her days as a two-time all-conference softball player and team captain at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. While there, she worked in the athletics department and met one of the industry’s greatest, the current director of athletics at Wellesley and a past-president of Women Leaders, Bridget Belgiovine. This was where Amy realized she could make athletics her career—which is why seeing other women successfully doing the job you want is so important!

Amy is truly a force to be reckoned with: Not only was she was the league’s first female commissioner and the youngest commissioner ever hired at the Division I level at the time of her appointment, but she’s also working toward her executive MBA at the MIT Sloan School of Management. We can’t wait to celebrate her graduation with her in June 2018!
