|We're glad that you care who we are and that you want to support a small business that cares who you are. You can always follow our shenanigans and product specials on our Facebook page, but if you just want to know that we are real people, we're happy to introduce our leadership team.
In addition to all of the other indispensable tasks she does around here, Donna manages nearly all of the customer service. She's southern and is as sweet as the tea in her home state of Virginia, unless her beloved New York Mets are losing. Donna has been asked every question in the book, so she has a wealth of knowledge about our products and can help you find the one that is right for you. She also built most of the physical infrastructure in the warehouse, so feel free to use her as a resource for your carpentry questions as well. Her favorite products are all the ones she has made up songs about, but if she had to pick a favorite to actually use it would be the Elasto-Gel Cranial Cap. She looks darn pretty in it too.
"This is Peggy"
Brian came to us from a background in Information Technology, so his day-to-day job is making sure our interwebz are up and running. Not surprisingly, Brian is also in charge of keeping everybody up to speed on internet memes and weird news stories, as well as helping Donna invent new songs. Brian's favorite product is Powerflex because it is the "sports medicine equivalent of duct tape,” which is totally true: if it is broken and needs to be cobbled together, Brian fixes it with Powerflex. And with 26 colors to choose from, it makes for a colorful toolkit.
"Does this blog make my butt look big?"
We stole Allison from her previous non-lucrative non-career in philosophy to help us deal with the bigger questions, but now she's an expert at smaller ones too. Our injured-athlete-in-residence, Allison clearly takes the most advantage of having an Athletic Trainer on site and is happy to share what she has learned about fending off the injuries that come with not being 18 anymore. She has a lot of favorite products depending on what is injured at any given time, but she thinks everybody needs the Shock Doctor Women's Loose Hockey Jock with Pelvic Protector, mostly because she judges you if you don't play hockey.
"Building a business is like eating a huge cheeseburger"
Julie is our founder, CEO, Athletic Trainer, and owner of the basement where the business started. Coincidentally, she’s also the owner of the garage, dining room, living room, kitchen, den, and bathroom that the business expanded into before we moved into our current warehouse. A graduate of Ithaca College’s Athletic Training Program, Julie went off to get a Master’s degree, work as an Athletic Trainer at the Atlanta Olympics, and serve as head Athletic Trainer at a women’s college before setting up shop right across the street from her Alma Mater.
Scratty has the distinction of being both the brains and the looks of IthacaSports. He went straight to the top of the IthacaSports Warehouse Team, supervising from a comfy chair where staff and visitors bring him a steady supply of cookies. He is very proud of the fact that he is the only one in the warehouse who won a squeaky trophy for being the smartest in his class. Scratty doesn't particularly have a favorite product, although his business proposals often involve us bringing in more tennis balls. And also bacon. He has big dreams for IthacaSports.
If you think IthacaSports would be a good fit for your [positive] attitude and [widely-varied] skill-set, we are always accepting applications for positions in our warehouse and customer service departments.
