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

This isn’t a token vertical buried in the back pages. We’re not at the bottom of some pulldown menu. We believe female athletes can fill more than the occasional feature — they can be the entire publication. From highlights to podcasts, newsletters and swag, JWS brings fans everything they need to see and know in the world of women’s sports. We’re just getting started, and we’re pumped to have you with us.

ATHLETE PARTNERS

HILARY KNIGHT

Hilary Knight is one of the most decorated players in the history of women’s ice hockey. As a member of Team USA, Knight has won an Olympic gold medal, two Olympic silvers, and seven gold medals at the IIHF World Championships. A CWHL MVP recipient, Knight has been an outspoken advocate for equitable pay for US women’s hockey throughout her career.

kerri walsh jennings

Kerri Walsh Jennings is a professional beach volleyball player and five-time Olympian. The winner of three Olympic gold medals and one Olympic bronze, Kerri now has her sights set on winning another gold at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. She is also the founder of p1440, a new beach volleyball league.

Kelley O'Hara

Kelley O’Hara plays for both the U.S. Women’s National Team and the Washington Spirit. As a member of the USWNT, she has won two World Cups and an Olympic Gold Medal. A graduate of Stanford University, O’Hara won the Hermann Trophy in 2009 as the top player in college soccer.

Maggie Steffens

Maggie Steffens is a two-time Olympic gold medalist and captain of USA Water Polo. A graduate of Stanford University, she led the Cardinal to NCAA championships in 2014, 2015, and 2017. She currently plays professionally in Spain and is a co-founder of 6-8 Sports.

Our Team

Haley Rosen

CEO & Founder

Frustrated by the lack of media coverage devoted to women’s sports, Haley founded Just Women’s Sports in 2020 with an Instagram account and a big idea. Within a few short months, Haley and her team transformed JWS into a multi-channel media brand with more than a million fans and counting. Despite this, her greatest life accomplishment remains being named an All-Pac-12 midfielder while playing for Stanford (but don’t tell her that). Previously, Haley worked in tech following a brief professional soccer career. You can read more about why she started JWS here.

Sivan Nadler

Head of strategy

Sivan is our veteran playmaker, who 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.

JOHN MURRAY

Editor in Chief

The least accomplished athlete on the JWS team, John makes up for it by writing pretty sentences and derailing company meetings with his musings on the world. He holds too many English degrees from both Stanford and Texas, is a published poet and photographer, and has previous experience both working at Nike and copy-editing a philosophy book.

Sydney Shaw

Operations

Sydney played both Division I field hockey and lacrosse at Stanford just to show off, 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. 

Haley Kopmeyer

Social + Outreach

A seven-year NWSL vet, we pulled Haley straight out of the goal. Now, instead of blocking shots, she’s dealing out assists, working on social and athlete outreach for JWS while moonlighting as our go-to on-air talent. The 2012 Big Ten Goalkeeper of the Year, Haley worked as Head of Media and Training for West Coast Goalkeeping prior to joining JWS.

Jesse Louie

Head of Social

Meme lord, budding photographer, and the man most likely to use the fire emoji in Slack, Jesse comes to Just Women’s Sports 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.
