In this special Cats in the Corner Office, we speak with two highly successful Wildcats about their career journeys.
Danielle Glosser is the principal of Client Raiser, a business dedicated to helping artists to increase their client volume and the visibility of their art. Since 2014, she has worked with over 200 artists in more than 20 states to support their professional goals.
Danielle has been a guest speaker at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum, the Maryland Institute College of Art, the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and ArtTable — the leading organization for professional women in the visual arts. Her career started as a mascot at the University of Arizona which led to a job for the NBA’s Golden State Warriors, where she was inspired to pursue a master’s degree in sociology with an emphasis in race issues. Subsequently, Danielle worked for an organizational development firm, served as a staffer on President Clinton’s Initiative on Race at the White House, and was appointed the director of public policy at the National Conference for Community and Justice before starting Client Raiser.
Rocky LaRose had a 35-year career as a leader and administrator in Arizona Athletics, and in 2009 she became the first woman in University of Arizona’s history to serve as Director of Athletics for a combined men’s and women’s intercollegiate program. Currently in her second career, Rocky is an award-winning photographer, represented by the No. 1 gallery in Tucson, the Madaras Gallery. Her stunning images have been featured on various magazine and books covers and in numerous articles, including Tucson Lifestyle and Wyoming Wildlife.
Join us in learning about how mentorship, resilience, authenticity and leadership connected the two worlds of athletics and art.
