I’ve been very excited by the progress we’ve made already with the USL Impact Committee and its subcommittees, and the direction of our leagues as we begin the 2021 season.”
Seedhouse joined the USL in 2016 and has overseen the rapid expansion of the organization’s digital efforts, including the launch of the official USL App last year. A former college soccer player at St. Leo University, from where Seedhouse also received her M.B.A. in Business Administration and Management, Seedhouse has been a leader in the league’s progression while becoming a respected voice in the local and national digital sports community.
