Dr. Amber Burdge wears many hats. Her primary role as Associate Athletics Director of Student-Athlete Success Services is to foster the classroom achievements of the never-ending flow of Bulldogs and Lady Techsters that call our campus home. She also teaches these same students and more, working as an adjunct professor on top of these other duties. Recently voted “Office Parent” by the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), she’s a constant champion of the idea that competing in the classroom is just as important as competing on the field, and the recent accolades from the LA Tech Sports family proves it. In this episode, she talks about her journey to her doctoral degree, the challenges of her and her team’s work in the Athletics Department, and the upcoming Student-Athlete Success Center that will break ground sooner rather than later.
