Women Leaders Podcast

Apr 7, 2019

On today’s episode, Patti is joined by Eastern Washington Director of Athletics Lynn Hickey. 2019 marks our 40th anniversary, and we are excited to be highlighting many of our past presidents, one of them being Lynn.

A true trailblazer among us, she has done it all in her 30 plus years in the industry and is still going strong! After spending 10 years as a head women’s basketball coach, first at Kansas State and then at Texas A&M, Lynn transitioned into administration at Texas A&M. Then after just six years on the administrative side, Lynn was hired as the Athletic Director at UTSA where she served for 17 years before taking over at Eastern Washington.

Listen in as Lynn talks about starting a Division l football program at UTSA from scratch, her surprise transition from UTSA to Eastern Washington, and the importance of grit, grace, and gratitude.
