TYLR 3000 - Taylor Your Life
As an Academic Certification Officer for Athletics, Jada Buckner works with student athletes and is interested in mentoring, leadership development, and guiding students through complex questions about their life and goals.
Previously, Buckner worked as a postgraduate intern for academic and membership affairs with the NCAA in Indianapolis. Prior to her time with the NCAA, she was an admissions counselor at East Carolina University. As a former student athlete, Buckner has witnessed first-hand the jarring transition from wanting to be a professional athlete to changing course. Based on her own experience, Buckner is eager to support others students, especially athletes, in their professional and career development so that they feel prepared to contribute to the working world and use the skills they learned to benefit to the working world once they finish their collegiate career.
Buckner has Master’s degrees in Exercise Physiology and Sport Performance from East Tennessee State University.
