Hi, I'm Bobbi-Sue Doyle-Hazard.
I'm the Assistant General Counsel for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Prior to becoming the assistant general counsel of the Buccaneers, I worked for two other companies in different industries (telecom and life sciences). My path to the sports world was full of twists and turns.
I attended UMass (Amherst) where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management and a Bachelor of Arts in Legal Studies. After graduating from Penn State University's Dickinson School of Law in 2007, I moved back to Massachusetts. Unfortunately, the legal market tanked right as I graduated. As a result, I was a licensed attorney who couldn’t find work as an attorney.
During this time I waitressed while taking on small matters for friends and family. Luckily, this was also the time when Twitter started. I began tweeting about my life including my job search and struggles waitressing. A few things happened as a result of this: 1) A local reporter for the Boston Business Journal followed me and wrote a story about young attorneys who couldn’t find work as attorneys and what they were doing instead (featuring me on the front page); 2) a local businessman saw that story and hired me as the first in-house counsel for his life sciences company; and 3) I “met” my current boss.
Some more information about me: I have two cats that are basically my children: Simon and Zoey. I help out with a small, local pet rescue started by a good friend of mine: Maxx and Me Pet Rescue. I love spending time with the pups and trying to find them homes. There are way too many animals in shelters. Adopt, don’t shop! I believe that cilantro was created by the devil himself. And I am a runner. I have been running since high school although with LOTS of “off” time. Next year I want to run at least two half marathons. As someone who lives with depression and anxiety, running is one of the ways that I practice self-care.
Now's your chance to ask me anything! Please write your questions in the comments section below and I'll answer the questions live on Thursday, October 20th at 3 pm ET.
