"The Women in Sports Law Symposium is an opportunity for law students to see the importance of diversity and women-leadership in male-dominated spaces like the sports industry. The goal of this event is to spotlight and learn from the women [and men] who join us as accomplished lawyers and professionals in sports.”
- Hannah Holmes, Tulane Law School '21

Events Operations Coordinator
I'm a first-year law student and a first-generation immigrant from Corona, CA. Holding a bachelor's degree in business management with a minor in Sociology from San Diego State University, my journey into law and sports advocacy stems from a diverse background.
Over five years, I immersed myself in the sports industry, gaining experience in management, production, videography, and marketing. Starting at SDSU, I created impactful end-zone footage for football team meetings, TV broadcasts, and NFL recruit highlight reels, even traveling as a head endzone camera operator.
Transitioning to the Mountain West Network, I operated graphics and replays for live sports streaming. My roles allowed me to work alongside directors and producers, delivering detailed game coverage for nationally ranked sports teams.
Beyond sports, I've worked as a personal assistant to a Forbes 30 under 30 entrepreneur and within a revenue-focused minority investment firm. These experiences equipped me with invaluable business insights and research skills, translating theory into real-life business strategies.
My passion for sports law and advocacy was ignited by witnessing hidden injustices in the industry, including mental health challenges, unequal compensation, and a lack of diversity and mentorship. Post-law school, my goal is to represent clients while reshaping the narrative around violent crimes, financial security, and mental health in male athletics.
I am a first-year law student, originally from Dallas, Texas. My academic journey began at The University of Texas at Austin, where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology & Health Education with a major in Sport Management in 2021. During my time at UT Austin, I actively contributed to the world of sports, gaining invaluable experience in various roles. I served as an integral part of Gameday Operations with Texas Athletics, interned with Texas Football, and contributed to Texas Athletics' social media.
Now, as a member of the Tulane University Law community, I've continued to immerse myself in the realm of sports law. Currently, I hold the position of CLE Coordinator for WiSLS and proudly serve as a 1L Honor Board Justice. My overarching goal for attending Tulane is to deepen my understanding of Sport Law, with the ultimate aspiration of becoming a Sports Agent.
