Robyn Oliveri, Marketing

Robyn Oliveri

After months of uncertainty, Robyn Oliveri found a way to integrate her marketing studies with a field she is truly passionate about: sports.

Two weeks after moving to Tampa, Oliveri decided to get out of her comfort zone by joining the Women’s Rugby Team on campus. She was elected treasurer of the club her sophomore and junior year, and now serves as the president. By leading her team on and off the field, Oliveri fundraised enough to move her team from Division II to Division I, and helped her team win Sport Club of the Year her first year on the executive board.

Having to pay for college and living expenses almost entirely on her own, Oliveri knew she had to find a balance in order to make her sports marketing dream come true. She started as a federal work study student at the Registrar’s Office with limited hours.

To get by, she picked up a variety of part-time jobs such as a math tutor at Kumon, a softball umpire on campus, and a phone operator at L&J Holdings. Her hard work paid off when she was promoted to a temporary OPS worker at the Registrar’s Office which allowed her to focus on that position. Her peers and supervisors noted her work ethic when she was nominated for the Student Employee of the Year award in 2015.

During her junior year, Oliveri was invited to the Marketing Mentor Program where she was fortunate enough to be mentored by Darcy Raymond, the vice president of marketing for the Tampa Bay Rays. Her mentorship experience confirmed her commitment to sports marketing.
