Kassen Delano Gunderman joined the University of Houston Department of Intercollegiate Athletics in March 2014 as the program's first director of student-athlete services.

In this role, Gunderman is responsible for student-athlete career development and post-graduate preparation. She is also developing and introducing a women's initiative designed to increase awareness, provide programming and support and raise funds for Houston's women's sports programs.

Before joining Houston, Gunderman was served on the compliance staff at the University of Pittsburgh, where she was responsible for prospective student-athlete recruiting and eligibility, continued eligibility certification for all current student-athletes and transfers, quarterly rules education, waiver submission and violation reporting, and game day oversight. She also worked as the athletic department's liaison to the University's Admissions & Financial Aid Office and to various academic departments and also coached the women's club lacrosse team.

Prior to her tenure with the Panthers, Gunderman spent several years at the University of Notre Dame as an academic counselor and tutor coordinator in the Office of Academic Services for Student-Athletes (ASSA). She provided academic counsel for the Men's and Women's Swimming and Diving teams, the Women's Rowing team and the Softball team. As their academics counselor, three teams earned the highest team GPAs in program history, and many student-athletes were nationally recognized for their academic success through Big East, All-American awards and postgraduate scholarships.

While at Notre Dame, Gunderman also served as the volunteer assistant coach for the Women's Lacrosse team.

Before starting a career in collegiate athletics, Gunderman was the operations manager and a sports performance specialist at Velocity Sports Performance in Alexandria, Va., where she became a certified USA Weightlifting coach. Gunderman also interned at NBC Sports in Rockefeller Plaza, assisting then-NBC Sports and Olympics Chairman Dick Ebersol and NBC Sports and Olympics President Ken Schanzer.

Gunderman received her bachelor's degree in business administration from Notre Dame in 2004 and followed that with her master of business administration degree from Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business in 2013.

A four-time letterwinner for the Irish Lacrosse team, Gunderman was a standout midfield/defender and played in 62 career games with 57 starts. She tallied 50 goals and 17 assists for 67 career points during her career and was a member of two NCAA tournament teams in 2004 and 2002.

A native of Alexandria, Va., Gunderman attended St. Stephen's and St. Agnes School where she was a four-sport standout in lacrosse, tennis, soccer and track and field. She was a lacrosse All-American and was recognized as a member of the Washington Post's prestigious 2000 All-Met Team.

In addition to her Houston responsibilities, Gunderman currently serves as a member of the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) Women's Leadership Council in Houston. She also coaches for Tenacity Texas, Houston's premier club lacrosse program, and is a proud supporter of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

Gunderman's husband, Chris, is a former Navy Football defensive end and currently works as the Vice President of Midstream Business Development for Asset Risk Management (ARM). The couple lives in Houston.
