Our name says it all. We’re 100% women’s sports, 100% of the time.

In a world where women’s sports have been perennially underfunded, underpromoted, and underappreciated, Just Women’s Sports exists to shine a light on the stories, athletes and moments that define and fuel the women’s game. This isn’t a token sub-brand or at the bottom of some dropdown menu. We aren’t doing this for charity. And don’t expect pink and glitter. From jaw-dropping performances to off-court fits, we bring sports fans everything they need to see and know in the world of women’s sports.

Our Team

Haley Rosen

CEO & Founder

Haley Rosen is the founder and CEO of Just Women’s Sports. Frustrated by a lack of media coverage devoted to women’s sports, Haley founded JWS in 2020 shortly after retiring from professional soccer. Starting with an Instagram account and a big idea, it took Haley only a few short months to grow JWS into the leading media platform dedicated to women’s sports. An All-Pac-12 midfielder at Stanford, Haley was named to both Forbes’ 30 under 30 and SBJ’s New Voices Under 30. You can read more about why she started JWS here.

Sivan Nadler

Head of strategy

Sivan leads strategy at JWS, working across the company and with key external partners to oversee business development, partnerships and special events. Sivan comes to JWS having held senior marketing, sponsorship, and special events roles at ESPN, Creative Artists Agency, Major League Baseball, IMG, the Boston Red Sox, the New England Patriots, and Bleacher Report. She is passionate about achieving equal treatment in sports, in no small part because her one-year-old daughter is going to be a world famous pro, and Sivan wants a boat.

Ben Osborne

Head of Content

Ben oversees the production of all content at JWS. He joins JWS from FOX Sports, having previously served as Editor-in-Chief at both Bleacher Report and SLAM. Outside of consuming, conceiving and producing sports content, Ben loves to watch his 13-year-old daughter Carla play soccer and basketball. And when it’s time to eat, there’s no one he’d rather have a meal with than his Greek-born, food-loving fiance Maria-Stella.

Ali Braverman

Head of Revenue

Ali leads JWS’ sales team, working closely with brands to create compelling and engaging content. Ali comes to JWS with over ten years of experience working in enterprise partnership sales at Google, Pinterest and Uber Eats. Raised in Chicago during the 90s, she was inevitably obsessed with the Jordan-era Bulls. Though her hoop dreams didn’t pan out, she did grow up to be a third-team DIII All-American softball player at Emory University. 

Rachel Quon

Head of Operations

Rachel oversees operations at Just Women’s Sports, managing internal processes, human resources, and product development. Previously, Rachel served as the Director of Marketing and Platform at Costanoa Ventures, an early stage investor in enterprise software, where she managed the firm’s marketing, communications, and operating platform. Before joining Costanoa, Rachel played professional soccer for the Canadian Women’s National Team and the NWSL’s Chicago Red Stars. 

Jackie Caldwell

Executive Director, Digital Content

Jackie oversees JWS’ digital content across all platforms and channels. She comes to JWS from Bleacher Report, where she spent most of the last decade building the BR App and streamlining their cross-channel content distribution. Jackie played basketball at UCLA, where she met her husband, who played volleyball. They have a 2-year-old daughter who is already obsessed with anything that involves a ball (especially soccer and basketball). Living in the Bay Area means Jackie gets to spend a lot of time at Lake Tahoe, though she says her favorite activity is anything involving her daughter and a skinny marg.

MyLinh Chau

Executive Director, Live Events & Remote Productions

MyLinh oversees all of Just Women’s Sports’ live events and remote production. She comes to JWS from SC30, where she served as Head of Experience.

Her two biggest interest outside of work? Hello Kitty and cars.

Kat Maniatakis

Director of Production

Kat oversees all of Just Women’s Sports’ video and audio content. She joined the JWS squad after nearly five years at Bleacher Report, where she helped tell stories in a range of mediums, from social media to long-form shows.

At JWS, her ultimate goal is to tell incredible stories about incredible athletes (alongside her incredible co-workers, of course).

Amanda Hajjar

Senior Director of Social Strategy

Amanda is in charge of JWS’ social media presence and strategy. She joins JWS having worked at ESPN, Madison Square Garden, with the New York Knicks and at Walt Disney Company. A sneakerhead, a dog lover, and a digital content maestro, Amanda spent every day of one childhood summer working on her hops in the hopes of dunking on a 10-foot hoop. Some dreams are meant to stay dreams, and in the meantime, Amanda’s new lifelong goal is to learn how to surf.

Jesse Louie

Senior Social Producer

Jesse is a senior social producer at JWS, working to conceive and produce original content across our digital channels. Meme lord, budding photographer, and the man most likely to use the fire emoji in Slack, Jesse comes to JWS from VaynerMedia, where he worked as a Senior Copywriter. A graduate of Rutgers University, he can often be found roaming the sidelines of a USWNT game with a camera in his hands. Or on TikTok. It really depends.

Sydney played both Division I field hockey and lacrosse at Stanford while also grabbing a pair of degrees. Prior to joining Just Women’s Sports, she worked for STRIVR as an operations associate. When she’s not working hard, Sydney is playing just as hard, hiking in the mountains or surfing the Pacific.

This includes our Varsity Squad program, athlete partners, field reps, and more.

Rachel Zuckerman

MARKETING MANAGER

Haley Kopmeyer

An Executive Producer for Big Ten Network Plus during her time at the University of Michigan, she comes to JWS from the NFL Network, where she worked on live digital content and podcast video shows as part of their digital production team. Amplifying women in sports has been a lifelong goal of Lauren’s, and in her free time, you’ll find her hanging at the beach, checking out new restaurants, or hanging with her dog, Maizey. 

Naidine Conde

Account Manager

Naidine serves as a liaison between JWS and our clients, helping complete deals and drive value for our partners. Naidine joins the JWS team from Blavity, Inc., where she integrated media strategy with hands-on client service. A Chapman grad, Naidine also worked at Univision, planning and marketing events.

News Editor

Kate oversees JWS’ editorial news coverage. After starting her sports journalism career as a reporter, she transition to editing and production for the Washington Post and for Sports Illustrated before joining JWS. Doomed by her parents to a lifetime of D.C. sports fandom, she’s managed to reap the rewards these last few years (#DistrictOfChampions). Outside of work, Kate can be found dodging a teetering pile of books or keeping up with her three younger sisters. Finally, to answer the question you’re all thinking: It’s pronounced Yan-CHOO-liss.

Dayna DeBlasi

Senior Manager, Integrated Strategy

Dayna works with the sales team to create custom content campaigns for JWS’ brand partners. An LA native and UC Berkeley grad (Go Bears!), Dayna most recently worked on the Integrated Strategy team at Bleacher Report after beginning her career at ESPN.
