For our final episode of the 2018 season, we chatted with Natalie Williams from Iowa State University. As the academic coordinator for men’s basketball and women’s softball, she monitors and supports student-athletes academically to ensure compliance with NCAA academic eligibility rules and to make sure they maintain their athletic scholarships. In college, she played volleyball so she believes her experience as a student-athlete can help her advisees. She loves how her job deals with both the athletic and academic side. We have a great discussion about the challenges of her job and her plans for the holiday season.
