In July of 2016, she was hired as the Interim Athletic Director for the second time while a national search is performed to hire the position, and following the hiring of Andy Fee, was promoted to Deputy Athletics Director/SWA.

Masner remains the sport supervisor for 10 programs at Long Beach State, and also oversees the internal operations of the department, including compliance, sports medicine and the strength and conditioning program.

A tremendous administrator, Masner also serves as the primary officer for gender equity on the CSULB campus, and has served on numerous NCAA and conference selection, oversight and rules committees as well as acting as an NCAA site representative for the NCAA Tournament.

A four-year softball letterwinner with the 49ers, Masner started working at Long Beach State in 1981, working in the ticket office before eventually moving into her current position.
