Director of Operations and Strategic Planning, Sports Reference
Jaclyn Mahoney leads Business Intelligence for Sports Reference, the company behind sites like Baseball-Reference.com and Basketball-Reference.com. She joined Leveling the Playing Field’s Board of Directors after a circuitous career path led her from studying and working with nonprofit organizations to finding a career aligned with her passion of promoting equity in sports. In addition to advocating for honoring the legacies of professional athletes from underrepresented groups at Sports Reference, Jaclyn regularly provides advice and support to women who want to work in the sports industry through organizations like Women in Sports Tech.
Jaclyn’s love for sports began the day she was born — literally, they were listening to the Eagles game in the delivery room. While other kids read stories before bed, Jaclyn listened to her dad recount the antics of the 1993 Phillies. When she was old enough to play basketball, her mom taught her everything she knew — which was a lot considering her mom was a former professional basketball player.
Jaclyn was introduced to LPF through its operations in Baltimore, the city she now calls home.
