NIL Network Founder Michelle Meyer Headshot

Michelle Meyer


An Experienced NIL Admin: As one of the first full-time NIL administrators in the country (at San Diego State), Michelle played a pivotal role in the development, launch, and management of SDSU's NIL Program. Her leadership and innovation were further demonstrated by her creation of an NIL admin monthly meeting and slack community, bringing together admins nationwide to discuss current issues and collaborate on solutions.

Established in the NIL Field: Now in it's 3rd year, Michelle founded and grew NIL Network into a go-to source for reliable NIL information and has built trusted relationships with hundreds of industry professionals through her work as a speaker, consultant, and author. She has established herself as a thought leader in the field and is highly knowledgeable about the challenges surrounding NIL and the unique pain points of each stakeholder.

For the past two years, Michelle has dedicated herself fully to the study and advancement of name, image, and likeness.

Here, College Athlete Influencers explores why that’s not the case and how brands can maximize their ROI through college athlete influencers.
