Degree: BA Public Relations, Fall 2004

What are you up to now?

I was elected Grant County Clerk in 2014 and took office in 2015. I am seeking reelection in 2018. I am proud to serve the citizens of Grant County and hope to continue as County Clerk for four more years!

How did NKU help you on your journey?

As a first generation college student, I began my post-secondary education at the NKU Grant County Center. At the Grant County Center I was able to build a foundation for educational success. When I decided that I wanted to pursue a career in the communications field I felt right at home when I met with the adviser for the Public Relations degree which was relativity new to NKU at that time. I was encouraged to seek internships which led to a full time position immediately after graduation. Even after obtaining my degree, there were NKU professors and advisers that I would go to for guidance. Today, I continue to pursue leadership opportunities to learn, advance and achieve. I am an alumna of Emerge Kentucky, a member of the Kentucky County Clerk’s Association and a member of the Kentucky Association of Counties. In 2016 the Secretary of State awarded me with 8th region Outstanding Civic Education Leadership Award. I love NKU and the feel blessed to be a college graduate.  

What advice do you have for students?

Don’t be afraid to ask for help, apply for internships, and build a network of professionals, professors, and students in your field to help connect you for future success.
