Leadership Development

Seven Buckeyes have been selected to participate in the 2019 Huntington Bucks Go Pro internship program.

Haley Walker-Robinson (LiFE Sports)

“I want to learn what goes on behind the scenes to create an organization like LiFE Sports so that I can one day be a part of a similar organization or start my own.”

Meghan Kammerdeiner (University Compliance)

“I expect to expand my horizons outside of the academic setting by practicing real-world applications of policy at the university level. I am excited to learn how the University upholds the highest standards of ethical conduct and compliance.”

Marissa Birzon (Columbus Chamber of Commerce)

“The Columbus Chamber of Commerce does an excellent job of communication, creating relationships and building a stronger economy in Columbus. I want to better understand what drives a consumer to a platform or decision and see what appeals to different consumers. This internship will allow me to acquire hands-on work experience that will help me improve my communication and leadership skills.”

Kaylee Karsh (OSU Wexner Medical Center)

“I am excited to gain experience in an engineering and hospital setting and develop technical skills working with medical devices.”

Marike Mousset (Mount Carmel Health System)

“I am hoping to attend medical school and working in the field this summer will help me figure out exactly what path I need to take to get there.”

Izzy Rodriguez (The Up Company)

“The Up Company provides such a unique opportunity and so many experiences that cannot be replicated in just any workplace. I am looking forward to learning and taking on new challenges throughout my internship.”

Maggie Samanich (The James Cancer Hospital)

“I wanted to work for the The James to get real-world work experience, further my business and HR skills and make connections to help obtain future employment.”

Additional Career Building

Taylor Lisevick is working with St. Francis Hospital - Connecticut Joint Replacement Institute this summer.

“My project will be in pain management in chronic pain patients, specifically looking into alternative methods for pain control in patients who are chronic users of opioids. I am most excited to learn about the alternative medications and analgesics for patients who fall under this category while hopefully discovering a better multimodal pain management plan for future use!” - Taylor Lisevick

Selina Vickery also will be gaining valuable internship experience this summer, working with The James as a Pelotonia fellow.

"I'm very excited to begin my journey as a Pelotonia Fellow this summer and to build upon the mentorship and experience I've had. Our project is on the relationships between chemotherapy, anxiety, and exercise, and we are eager to get to work!" - Selina Vickery

Buckeyes Give Back

Izzy Rodrigeuz took part in the Buckeyes Go International service-learning trip to Costa Rica May 1-7. Student-athletes participated in sports activities with local youth, supported a food bank and participate in a beach clean-up while participating in other service projects.
“My trip to Costa Rica was absolutely incredible. We had the opportunity to not only do service within the communities, but also do many fun activities like zip-lining and a catamaran tour. Experiencing the culture and embracing the children through sports was such an amazing opportunity. I am so grateful to have had the chance to explore another country and their culture. I was able to make great friendships and learn some new things about myself as well.” - Izzy Rodriguez

Buckeyes Release Full 2019 Schedule

The Buckeyes have set their 2019 schedule, head coach Lori Walker-Hock announced April 25. The Buckeyes, who tallied a 9-6-4 overall record, finishing third in the Big Ten with a 6-2-3 conference slate, and advanced to their ninth NCAA appearance in the last 10 seasons in 2018, will take on eight NCAA Tournament teams from a season ago.

“Our schedule has a great balance of high-quality teams that play different styles. In our non-conference segment, we’re always trying to see a variety of teams, particularly in their pressing and how they’ll defend us. It’s important to see how our players adjust in-game and then later in training sessions as we head into Big Ten play. This is a really strong schedule that boasts the start or final game of several strong home-and-home series. I’m happy with how the schedule has been set heading into Big Ten play.” - Head Coach Lori Walker-Hock
