The dedication, discipline and mental focus Channing had as a competitive motorcycle racer set the groundwork for her professional career. Her competitive nature as an athlete has translated into her role as an accomplished sales executive in the sports and entertainment industry. The “winning” feeling is what continues to be the driving force behind her motivation to succeed.

Prior to joining Connect, Channing was part of the team that opened Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas where she helped develop the corporate strategy and sold sponsorships across the venue and a variety of events, including the F1 USGP race weekend, ESPN Summer X Games, MotoGP, and the Amphitheater business. Channing kick-started her career with the Dallas Stars in Corporate Partnerships and Broadcast, and is a proud alumna of the University of North Texas.

Channing has a passion for travel and learning about different cultures around the globe. When she isn’t exploring and enjoying the outdoors on her motorcycle, you can find her at a Texas Country concert or binge-watching TED Talks.

Channing sits on the Board of Directors for Dallas Influencers in Sports and Entertainment, and also serves as an Advisory Board Member for the UNT Sports Entertainment Management MBA program.
