Angel Bovee knows what it is like to be an elite athlete and put it all on the line for a dream! After a successful career as a television producer, Angel quit her job to pursue her passion to represent the U.S. on the world’s largest stage. She became a three-time U.S. boxing champion that represented Team USA in two World Championships. After gaining her master’s degree in 2011, she joined Adecco as Specialist for the USOC’s Athlete Career and Education Program. The demands of juggling a work schedule and a full-time training regimen to chase an Olympic dream can be daunting, and the Athlete Career and Education Program helps Olympic and Paralympic athletes gain career experience and a paycheck while pursuing their dreams of gold.
