Duffy came to Orlando after three years at the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL).
In her year as President, Duffy capitalized on the success of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup and brought the NWSL to the ESPN family of networks, introduced Louisville City FC as a 2021 expansion club and helped secure a marquee, long-term league partnership with Budweiser, the first official beer partner of the NWSL. She also helped procure an extension with the league’s founding partner, Nike.
In 2017, Duffy helped to establish a groundbreaking partnership with A+E/Lifetime, which included a national television and streaming deal for all league matches as well as the launch of NWSL Media, the league’s commercial arm.
She received the 2019 Honorary All-America Award from United Soccer Coaches and in 2017 was named one of AdWeek’s 35 Most Powerful Women in Sports in 2017.

Following her collegiate career, she finished with the Pirates as the school's all-time leader in points (83) and goals scored (33) and finished second in assists (17).
