“As part of my role in this position I have interacted with Mike Ryan for numerous reasons. First, I hired Mike Ryan as the Master of Ceremony for our last two Awards Galas. His incredible enthusiasm and unmatched positive attitude created the exact vibe that we wanted for the events. Mike was a true professional while creating a wonderful rapport with the audience. His diverse background and skillsets made him the perfect host. Mike shared fun and relatable stories as he kept our event on-schedule and entertaining for everyone in the room.

Second, Mike is a leading authority in sports medicine and in his role as a reporter for NBC Sports we have worked on many stories together that aired during NFL games and during the Tokyo Olympics.

Third, I worked with Mike for nearly 20 years while he was the head athletic trainer for the Jacksonville Jaguars and I was able to offer assistance related to my expertise in heat and hydration issues for the physically active.”
