Justin Zatkoff earned a B.A. in Political Science in 2010, but even before his graduation, he launched a career marked by leadership, both in politics and business. From 2007 to 2009, Zatkoff worked as a Consultant for Strategic National Campaign Management, managing the College Republican National Committee’s National Field Program and promoting Republican candidates at the national and state level.
Although he never truly left that role, Justin Zatkoff joined Life Time Fitness as the Aquatics Department Head, a position that required him to oversee more than 60 employees and ensure the achievement of monthly revenue benchmarks. In just two years with Life time Fitness, Zatkoff earned an “Artistry” award for becoming the highest-performing Aquatics Department Head in the company.
Today, Justin Zatkoff is once again enrolled in school. This time, Mr. Zatkoff is in the Juris Doctor program at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law. Scheduled to graduate in 2014, Mr. Zatkoff has fully immersed himself in both the academic and practical side of legal studies. In addition to earning a Dean’s Scholarship, he won the “Book Award” for the highest grade in the Analytical Tools course, and is ranked in the top of his class.
Beyond the walls of the classroom, Justin Zatkoff employs his legal studies in practical settings. From December 2011 to August 2012, he served as a Law Clerk with the Farmington Hills, Michigan, firm of Shifman & Carlson, P.C.; a position that allowed him to draft legal memoranda and prepare legislation documents for matters of charter school, municipal, and election law. During the summer of 2012, Mr. Zatkoff worked as a judicial intern for a federal judge, Honorable Lawrence P. Zatkoff, in the Eastern District of Michigan. His dedication in that position earned him a Certificate of Appreciation from Judge Zatkoff.
Despite his full academic and professional schedule, however, Justin Zatkoff has always found time for athletics and fitness. As an undergraduate, he earned recognition as a track and field scholar-athlete during his time at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan.
