PortfolioGen Profile for Drew Hodge

  • PortfolioGen Member Since 2017

Senior at Coastal Carolina University Studying Recreation and Sport Management. I am a diligent and motivated worker focused on furthering my career in the sport management field. I offer a diverse work history from working as a Captain's Mate on a boat to serving as a Student Ambassador for the Chanticleer Athletic Foundation. Sports have impacted my life in many positive ways from growing up as a child playing youth football all the way through high school where I received a varsity letter in three sports. Sports are what I love and I hope to give back to others by finding a career in sports that positively affects those around me.
