Joseph Sharkey Purpose Statement/Summary
Welcome to my Web Portfolio! My name is Joe Sharkey, and I am from Norwood, Ma. My goal in the sports leadership field is to be the General Manager of Basketball Operations for an NBA basketball team; namely, the Boston Celtics. Basketball is my passion, and I have loved the Boston Celtics since I can remember. However, in obtaining this Master of Sports Leadership degree I have developed an understanding and real appreciation of the other opportunities offered in the sports industry. I played basketball at Brown University, so it’s what I love and really know. That being said, I love sports in general and my new understanding of the sports industry as a whole has transformed the way I see sports for the better. Culminating in my internship with the Boston Celtics Community Engagement department in the summer of 2019, I know I am ready to make a meaningful impact on an organization in the sports industry.
