This Young Professional has already had not one, but two dream jobs. But that’s not stopping Roxanne Steinhoof from continuing her career in Sports Tourism.
Roxanne Steinhoof is the Marketing and Communications Specialist at Chicago Sports Commission and Choose Chicago. She’s been there for five years and handles the outgoing communications including managing marketing, advertising, design, and the brand. This became dream job number 2 - showcasing one of the greatest cities in the world.
Dream job number 1 was working on an Olympic bid. Roxanne’s curiosity for exploring the intersection of sports and politics led her to Boston, which is where she worked on the Boston 2024 Olympic & Paralympic Bid Committee.
“Seeing the positive impact of the events we bring is incredibly rewarding.” - Roxanne Steinhoof
One of the most rewarding experiences Roxanne says she has had in the sports events and tourism industry is working on the 2018 Laver Cup from bid to hosting the event.
“We do what we do to share the places we love through the universal language of sports – seeing so many people from around the world experiencing Chicago who would not have otherwise is truly special.”
