Position:
Director for Student-Athlete Development

Joined Houston:
August 2010


Sasha Blake is the Director of Student-Athlete Development. She also coordinates community services projects for all 17 Houston sports programs.

As director of the Leadership Academy, she facilitates and oversees one of the nation's few collegiate athletics leadership programs that builds success among student-athletes through personal and team leadership development. Throughout each school year, Blake directs and coordinates a curriculum that uses activities, guest speakers and community service projects to promote the development of character, integrity, leadership skills and responsibility.

In addition, she has developed and maintains a strong connection to the athletics administration as liaison with the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), a group of student-athlete leaders from each sports program.

During her Houston tenure, she has represented Houston at several national events, including the 2013 NCAA Effective Facilitation Workshop, the 2012-13 National Leadership Forum and the 2011 NCAA Women's Leadership Symposium.

Before joining the Cougars, Blake worked as a teacher at several high schools, including Clear Springs High (2009-10), Barrington High (2006-09) and Channelview High (2004-06), where she served as the girls' volleyball head coach.

At Channelview High, she was responsible for managing a three-team program, including the varsity, junior varsity and freshman squads. She guided the team to a second-place finish in district in 2004 as well as bi-district and area championships.

Blake also served as a coach for Houston Juniors Club Volleyball for three years.

Blake was a four-year member of the Fairfield Volleyball team from 1999 to 2003. There, she helped lead Fairfield to three conference championships and three trips to the NCAA Tournament.

Following her collegiate playing days, she received her bachelor's degree in communications with a media studies focus from Fairfield in 2003. She later earned her master's degree in applied developmental and educational psychology from Boston College in 2009.
