Admission, Advancement, and Communications Representatives


As a member of the communications team, I design and manage the production of print communications for a variety of audiences to advance the messages and brand identity of the College. Since joining the Knox staff in 1997, I have worked on many interesting projects-the most memorable being a fireproof diploma for honorary degree recipient Stephen Colbert in 2006. I'm a lifelong local resident, having grown up on the dairy farm across from Green Oaks, Knox's 700-acre biological field station in rural Knox County.


In 1991, I came to Knox as the secretary in the Public Relations Office. Over the years, the name of the office has changed, co-workers have come and gone, and hundreds of students have worked in the office. Working with students keeps me on top of current events. (And, today, one of our former student workers is at the helm of the office!) If you need to talk to someone in Communications and don't know who...give me a call...I'll be happy to send you in the right direction!
