Underwood joins AHEC team


2018 started with a bang for the NE KY AHEC office as staff welcomed KaLeigh Underwood as the new marketing assistant. KaLeigh grew up in Olive Hill and has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Eastern Kentucky University. While she’s never worked in the health care field, she has six years of experience in journalism. She will graduate in May with a master’s degree in Appalachian Studies from Appalachian State University.

“I am beyond excited for this opportunity,” said KaLeigh. “I knew I wanted to use my career to do something to help Appalachia. So to get to come home and for the betterment of northeastern Kentucky is a dream come true.”

As the marketing assistant, KaLeigh will oversee the design of promotional material for events as well as manage the website and NE KY AHEC’s social media accounts.
