Meet New PR Advisor Kinsley Baker
Public relations majors will see a new face when they return in the fall. Kinsley Baker, a 2014 alumna of Georgia Southern University, joined the CLASS Advisement team earlier this month.
This is not, however, her first experience with advising. During the Spring 2014 semester, Kinsley served as an intern in the CLASS Advisement Center to complete her M.Ed in counseling education at the University. During her internship, Kinsley advised general studies (BGS) students as well as coordinated the first-ever General Studies Week to inform and educate the student population of the benefits of the BGS program.
Kinsley also holds a bachelor of science in psychology from Georgia Southern, and has worked with other University departments including Career Services and parent programs in the Admissions Office. Kinsley is excited to serve as the new public relations advisor, explaining that she has always wanted to work with college students.
“I decided to pursue my Master’s in counseling with an emphasis in student affairs because I enjoy helping students find their purpose, both personally and professionally,” Kinsley said.
A native of Statesboro, Kinsley says she has always been a Georgia Southern Eagle. “Georgia Southern has been my home for the past six years. I have seen the campus and student body grow and change in ways that some thought was never possible,” she said. “The love and pride that students have for this University is inspiring, and I know that I will see that in the students I advise.”
Kinsley is married to alumnus Dan Baker. Together they have a three-month-old daughter named Lilly Collins. Kinsley says that when she is not working, she spends every moment with her family.
Students can find Kinsley in the newly renovated Sanford Hall, Room 3001-B.
