With over fifteen years of design experience, Kristen Polk returned to her alma mater in 2015 to work as the Bagley College’s communications specialist. With a bachelor’s degree in fine art with an emphasis in graphic design and a master's of business administration, she handles all the college’s design needs including print, web and social media.
Before joining the BCoE family, Polk worked as a web developer, graphic designer, and art director for universities and publishing groups. She is a member of the University and College Designers Association, the American Institute of Graphic Arts, the Public Relations Association of Mississippi, the Southern Public Relations Federation, and the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education.
Polk is originally from Columbus, Mississippi, and says that she is thrilled to return to Bulldog country. When she’s not designing, she enjoys photography, hiking and reading.
