You just knew that at some point Ops Nation would end up at LSU. Well, it just so happens that the first person to get that honor is the Director of Operations for LSU Track & Field, Andrea Tepe. Andrea is in year number five helping to manage what amounts to a small corporation. As we’ll find out in this episode, it takes a lot of organization and a ton of hustle.
In this episode Andrea talks about growing up in Ohio, he early thoughts of going into coaching and teaching, loving the college experience, getting in more miles during a home meet than any of the athletes, the differences between her last stop (Akron) and her current home, her experience at Akron coordinating the MAC championships, her biggest challenge coming into LSU, coordinating banquets, handling the logistics of a weekend when the team splits into parts for different meets, and her Merit Badge Moment involving a canceled flight.
Andrea’s Tip of the Day:
- Create your own templates.
