Sometimes our careers aren’t what we planned. That’s especially true for Kelli Masters – champion baton twirler, former Miss Oklahoma and now one of the few female sports agents.
Her story began when a former Sooners quarterback contacted Masters, an attorney, with legal questions. Soon, she began to receive more and more legal inquiries from other former football players. As she worked, she discovered that athletes often keep bad company, many of whom are motivated by an athlete’s big paycheck. That sparked Masters’ career change.
Today, Masters is an inspiration to other women who are setting sights on male-dominated industries.
