Hi! I’m Kennedy. I was born and raised in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho. I participated in a concurrent enrollment program which allowed me to receive my Associates’ degree during high school. I transferred to Boise State in the Fall of 2017. During my undergraduate career, I became very involved on campus. I served as the president of the political science association, a funding board officer on ASBSU, a Bronco Ambassador, and other exciting endeavors. I also worked as a student assistant in the Career Services office for two years. I graduated from Boise State in the May of 2019 with my B.S. in Political Science and a minor in English.

I am so excited to transition into a professional role within Career Services. My position works to strategically develop a marketing and communication plan for our events and social media platforms. Additionally, I manage Boise State’s Handshake page and work with employers to help them recruit our incredible students. I’m passionate about creating a student-driven narrative in relation to career development and experiential learning.

Some fun facts about me: I am the world’s biggest Taylor Swift and Tom Brady fan. I classically trained in ballet and contemporary dance for 16 years. I have two Siamese cats, London and Louie.
