On Tuesday, October 27, we were pleased to host our first Career Breakfast for this school year online via Microsoft Teams Live Event to explore a day in the life in Professional Athletics with two of our alumni, Spencer Estey ’12 and Jordyn Listro ’13.
 
It was interesting to hear about their differing perspectives regarding professional athletics. Spencer opened our eyes to a variety of career possibilities, such as the use of data analytics on player performance and how it has led to improved decision making and better results in the field. He also shared some wise advice – focus on a specific sport and figure out the skills that would be the most beneficial, then learn those skills and apply them to a sports team. Jordyn shared her journey as a professional soccer player both in Spain and now in Orlando. She reflected honestly on her challenges and encouraged students to take similar steps as she did. By persevering through uncomfortable situations, surrounding herself with a positive support group (which she formed at Bayview Glen), going the extra mile and remaining focussed on her end goals, Jordyn can truly say she is living her dream.
 
The next Career Breakfasts are scheduled for Tuesday, December 1, 2020 and Tuesday, March 2, 2021 at 8:00 a.m. online via Microsoft Teams Live Event. Please stay tuned for more details.
