Business Administration / Management, 2003
Although Kristen has graduated from USC Aiken, she has not wandered far from campus as she is the Administrative Director of Human Resources at Aiken Regional Medical Centers. Kristen, initially came to USC Aiken with the intention to transfer, but after receiving a scholarship she abandoned those thoughts, replacing them instead with involvement in campus activities. She participated as a Pacesetter, a Student Government senator, as well as becoming a Cheerleader. Kristen also took advantage of the study abroad opportunity to Prague, where she gained a better appreciation for “the world of work” as well as respect for other cultures.
Kristen continued her education at Lipscomb University where she graduated with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration (Healthcare Management) in 2006. A move she was prepared for with abilities to manage time, prioritize responsibilities, and live independently obtained as a Pacer. Kristen’s commitment to the University has not stopped, as she serves on the Alumni Council to give back to University. The University that provided her with the guidance of her professors and staff, friendships she developed and maintained, and the skill set Kristen established have helped her to become a successful Human Resources professional.
