World Champion Soccer Player to Speak at Global Pet Expo
Christie Rampone, captain of the 2015 U.S. women’s soccer team and two-time World Cup champion, will be the featured speaker at the fifth annual Professional Women’s Network (PWN) Breakfast at Global Pet Expo.
Rampone is the only player on the U.S. Women’s National Team to play in five World Cups, of which the U.S. won two. She is also the first four-time Olympian in the history of the squad, guiding the team to gold medals in 2004, 2008 and 2012. With more than a decade and a half of experience, she has defined herself as the leader of the U.S. women’s national team and is recognized as the best defender in women’s soccer. As the special guest speaker, Rampone will share her insight as a leader and the triumphs and challenges she faced on the road to victory.
“Ms. Rampone is an influential role model both for driven young professionals and aspiring business women and we are excited to have her present at our networking event,” said Andy Darmohraj, APPA executive vice president and COO. “This is a must- attend event for all future industry leaders.”
The APPA Young Professionals (YP’s), an industry group dedicated to promoting the career path development of young pet industry professionals, will be co-hosting the event for the first time this year.
The breakfast will not be open to the public, and Global Pet Expo attendees must wear their badges. The event is sponsored by the PWN and YP’s, but membership is not a requirement to attend.
