Becky (Marx) Keogh transferred from Loyola University Chicago to the University of Michigan to complete her bachelor’s degree in Mathematics Education with a minor in Physics. Keogh also played softball at the University of Michigan, where she was the starting catcher for the 2005 National Championship team and an All-American in 2006. After college, Keogh pursued her love for softball and became the Volunteer Assistant Coach at the University of Michigan, and it was from there she got involved with The Academy for Sport Leadership.
During her time with TASL in the spring of 2009, Keogh helped plan the Future Coaches Camp and helped with day-to-day tasks associated with records. From being a part of TASL, Keogh learned that having females in leadership roles doesn’t happen on its own but is something that needs cultivating attention and support, and TASL helps put those ideas into motion.
After completing her Master’s Degree in Sports Management at The University of Michigan, she coached at Indiana University for two years. She then became the Assistant Softball Coach at the University of Illinois-Chicago in 2013. Keogh moved to Iowa in 2015 with her husband and two children, and became an Admissions Counselor for the University of Iowa, and in 2016 welcomed her third child into her family. In 2017 she transitioned to the Office of the Registrar for the University of Iowa, where she works with individual departments to create and manage their courses.
Although Keogh is no longer in athletics professionally, she believes that the same principles TASL teaches applies to the general workforce. She continues to support female leadership by championing her fellow coworkers and mentoring students.
