You might be surprised when I tell you that women work with the NFL. I know I was, and there is more than one female who works for the NFL. In this summer alone, eight women went to NFL training camp. Last year Kathryn Smith became the NFL's first full-time coach, working in special teams quality control with the Buffalo Bills. That means that she prepares the team for the game. In a quote, Kathryn said ¨it's a tremendous honor… I might be the first, but I don't think I'll be the only one for long.´´
She was right, because other women do work for the NFL like Stephanie Jackson, the Vikings scouting intern. Stephanie is on her second year of law school and has worked on multiple things to do with the NFL such as working on player contracts, the legal team, etc. Another woman who works for the NFL is Charlotte Anderson. Anderson works for the Cowboys, she is listed as executive vice president, vp of brand management, president of charity foundation, and is said to have her say in anything happening from the super bowl to decision making at Cowboy stadium. I was shocked and inspired when I found out that lot of women work in a mostly male dominated work force, and I hope that when I get older there are even more women who work for the NFL!
