Over the summer, the University of La Verne promoted former Deputy Director of the Athletics Department Jenna Panatier to athletic director, making her just the second woman to oversee the happenings of the University’s intercollegiate sports programs.
Scott Winterburn, the former athletic director, has stepped down from this position he held since 2018 to focus on his duties as head baseball coach.
Panatier has been a faculty member for over 11 years. She has held various positions in the athletic department as well as serving as head coach of the women’s volleyball team.
Panatier received her bachelor’s degree in sports management and business from St. John’s University, followed by a master’s degree in business administration from Lipscomb University.
