Alumni Tale: Katie McCarter ’10

What did you study at UNH?

Recreation Management and Policy

What were you doing 1 year out of college?

After an internship with the United States Olympic Committee (USOC), I accepted my first position as the Team USA Manager with U.S. Figure Skating in Colorado Springs, CO. I have worked two Olympic Games (Vancouver 2010 & Sochi 2014).

What are you doing now?

I recently moved back to the east coast, accepting a position with NBC Olympics in Stamford, CT. I look forward to traveling to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for the 2016 Summer Games and PyeongChang, South Korea for the 2018 Winter Games with NBC.

How do you feel your time at UNH has had an impact on where you are today?

The Recreation Management & Policy and Sports Studies professors helped me achieve my career goals. I am pursuing my passion with NBC Olympics in large part due to them.

Why do you believe in UNH?

I believe UNH educates the whole person: academically, socially, spiritually and mentally.
