She may work behind-the-scenes, but LA Sparks President and COO Christine Simmons lives her life in the spotlight. She shares with Linda about her journey in becoming one of an elite group of women running professional sports teams, how she deals with the bar constantly being raised (“After we won the championship, I felt like I had a target on my back”) and how she is committed to growing the audience for women’s basketball—proving to sports fans that female athletes are just as talented as their male counterparts. Christine also talks about what it is like to work for sports legend Magic Johnson and why she thinks her job makes her a better mom to her 7-year-old son.
