#010 - Rebecca Smith is a California born ex-international footballer with 74 caps for the team she captained, the New Zealand national team.
She’s represented New Zealand at multiple World cups and Olympic games, and has played professional football in 4 different countries, notably winning a Treble with Vfl Wolfsburg.
These international experiences have clearly served her well, as since retiring, she’s put her degrees (Economics, Spanish, an MBA and Masters in Psychology) to good use through managing FIFA's Women's World Cups and managing Strategic Planning in Women's Football, as well as working as a freelance sport consultant.
Rebecca has been foraying into the world of media, co-founding JAMAA Sports Productions, an award-winning production company that aims to highlight the entire journey of the athlete, not just the game, as well as becoming Global Executive Director of Women's Game for the successful football storytelling authority that is COPA90.
She isn’t new to the podcasting world either, she hosts her own podcast ‘The Players Podcast’ which is available on BBC. Very much a woman of “many hats” as she puts it. Don’t miss this episode with a true progressive of the 2021 sporting world. If you'd like to get the links and show notes for this episode, head to:
