CEO & Co-Founder
Rebecca is a tax expert turned social entrepreneur passionate about using sport for social good.
Originally from a rural North Dakota town of fewer than 100 people, Rebecca leveraged a homemade highlight film into a full basketball scholarship at the University of Kansas. There, she earned a BS and MS in Accounting as a first-generation college student.
After graduation, Rebecca obtained her CPA license and gained six years of experience in New York, Switzerland, and Bolivia working in public accounting, private equity, and sport-for-development for EY, Partners Group, and A Ganar, respectively.
In 2014, Rebecca was shocked to realize that many of her athlete peers were struggling emotionally and financially in life after sport. Determined to help other athletes avoid the same fate, Rebecca moved to Boston to attend Harvard Business School. While earning her MBA, Rebecca became obsessed with understanding and solving the problem of competitive athletes failing to realize their potential.
After over two years of research and solution-testing, Team Trey’s efforts culminated in the 2018 launch of Trey Athletes. Rebecca resides in Dallas, where she is a Presidential Leadership Scholar and Draper Richards Kaplan Entrepreneur.
