Writing has been an integral part of Kristen’s life since childhood. Her interest in the craft blossomed in second grade when she and her friends composed adventure stories and acted them out during recess. English was always her favorite school subject, so it was a natural choice for her college major. Throughout her career, Kristen has enjoyed working as a post-secondary composition instructor and writing tutor, secondary English teacher, and now a communications manager in the Office of Marketing and Communications. Her goal is to ensure that all university communications effectively represent the A&M-Commerce brand.

How can I help you?

My job is to promote A&M-Commerce through effective written content. If you want to produce a university-affiliated marketing piece—from an article to an advertisement—for your college, department or organization, I'm here to help! Also, if you have an idea for a news story, I'm all ears! It is our department's mission—and my job­—to share university news with as many people as possible. Our goal is to enhance the visibility and presence of A&M-Commerce in North Texas and beyond! We publish university news on our news and social media sites, and share press releases with local and regional media outlets.

A Conversation with Kristen

What would you tell a student who is thinking about attending A&M-Commerce?

A&M-Commerce is the perfect size. It's big enough to offer quality degree programs and a bustling campus life, with great resources and fun events, yet it’s small enough to maintain a personal family atmosphere where everyone feels welcome and included.

What do you like most about your career?

I especially enjoy the editing process. As I carve out a polished written work from a rough draft, I can relate to the satisfaction a sculpture artist must feel.
