REBECCA NGUYEN

Department: Administration/Recruiting Staff
Position: Academic Eligibility and Compliance Specialist
Biography: Rebecca "Becca" Nguyen plays a huge part in our recruiting process as well.  

In addition to doing face to face recruiting in the gyms for our players, Becca also helps them use the web to their advantage. She helps train the girls to get in contact with college coaches all across the nation and look for schools that specialize in their planned majors. 

She helps track their progress towards graduation with an eye on successfully passing through the NCAA/NAIA Eligibility Centers.  She also assists with SAT/ACT testing and has developed a 4 year plan of steps that need to be done to "get the offers".

Becca is currently employed as an Academic Advisor for Students at Central Washington University.  Her knowledge of the rules and regulations regarding student athletes from the NCAA side of things really helps our girls.  Prior to this she was at New Mexico State University & Seattle University.  She is finishing her thesis for her Masters Degree in Sports Administration & Leadership from Seattle University while working in her chosen field.
