Project Director

Elodie is currently completing her final year of the Ph.D. in Sport Management at University of Florida. Her research mainly focuses on the personal and athletic development of amateur and professional athletes with a primary interest in the identity development and reformation during the critical transition to life after sport. The overarching goal of her research is to examine psychosocial processes and resources that enhance current and former elite athletes’ well-being and facilitate their adjustment to life without competitive sport. Her dissertation, assessing identity statuses, psychosocial functioning, and transition experiences of former college athletes, has been funded by the NCAA Graduate Student Research Grant.

Elodie is originally from France and a former NCAA Division I athlete, as she played college tennis for the Owls at Florida Atlantic University. She came to UF with over three years of experience in career counseling. While at UF, she has been the Instructor for the Sport Career Transition, the Ethical Issues in Sport, and the Sport and Society courses. She has presented and published her research at numerous national and international refereed journals and conferences. She is a member of the North American Society for Sport Management (NASSM) and the Professional Association of Athlete Development Specialists (PAADS).
