Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) alumna Christina Hovestadt was recently named one of the top women to lead sports over the next 10 years by USA Today.
A Jacksonville native, Hovestadt has worked as a Community Relations Manager for the NFL since 2018. It's her non-profit work that sets Hovestadt apart: she's the founder of A Seat at the Table (ASAT), a community of women in sports and entertainment who are dedicated to equipping and empowering the next generation of female game-changers through mentorship. She's included in USA Today's rankings alongside many other women who broke barriers in 2020.
"Christina’s passion for giving back and making a difference in the community is unstoppable,” said FSCJ Director of Athletics Ginny Alexander. “It is so great watching her do it now at such a larger national level.”
A volleyball player for FSCJ from 2006-2008, Hovestadt went onto earn her Bachelor's degree from North Florida in 2010. She previously served as Executive Director of the Rashad Jennings Foundation.
