The New Agenda: Northeast is an organization that promotes the advancement and recognizes the achievements of girls and women in sports throughout New England.

Since coming to URI in September 2002, Sperry has been an academic advisor/learning specialist for men’s basketball and men’s track & field squads, and has worked with the gymnastics, soccer, swimming, softball, rowing, and women’s basketball teams. In addition to her academic work with student-athletes, Sperry also served as the coordinator for the Rhody Life Skills Program. 

During her own athletic career, Sperry was a national-class distance runner. She was a National Amateur Champion at 10-kilometers in 1986. Sperry also qualified for the 1988 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in the Marathon and finished 18th at the 1986 Boston Marathon.
