Johnny joined Team IMPACT in January 2020 as an intern and currently serves as our Development Systems Associate. In his role, Johnny supports our Development Staff by managing our operation systems. He handles our prospect research system, donor stewardship and event management and assists with all donor and financial reporting.

Johnny graduated in 2018 from Assumption University in Worcester, MA, with a degree in Marketing and minors in Economics and Sports Management. After school, he worked in sales while seeking an opportunity to combine his passion for sports with a chance to make a difference in the world. He pursued his Master’s degree in Sports Leadership at Northeastern University in hopes to find that opportunity. In doing so, he discovered a connection to intern at Team IMPACT for credits towards his degree. After completing his required internship time, Johnny stayed on as our Graduate Assistant while he finished the rest of his degree.

When asked the question, “Why Team IMPACT?” Johnny said:
Sports have always been a massive piece of my life, and since I started my time at undergrad, I have wanted to be involved with an organization with a mission bigger than the people around them. I wanted to find a place in the professional world where I could make an impact in the lives of others. Assumption also was fortunate to have multiple Team IMPACT matches while I was at school, and even though I wasn’t a student-athlete, I was well aware of the importance they had to my friends that were. Hearing about an organization that changed the lives of children with chronic illnesses while also making an irreplaceable impact in the lives of young athletes was immediately my kind of organization.
