Lindsey Booth (859) 257-2104

Hi Everyone! My name is Lindsey Booth and I am from Vinton, Virginia in the beautiful Roanoke Valley.  I am a very proud and recent 2013 graduate of the University of Kentucky. I found that my time in undergrad was filled with endless opportunities that expanded my knowledge, helped me to set and reach goals, and also prepared me professionally for my future. From standing on my feet for 24 hours in UK’s DanceBlue marathon to interning for a summer in Cape Town, South Africa my time has been well spent. As an out-of-state student I immersed myself in UK life by getting involved on campus and familiarizing myself to Lexington. You will find that Lexington is the perfect size city with a small town twist where people understand what it means to bleed blue. I feel so privileged to be working for a place that I now call home, so I invite you to come experience the Big Blue Nation for yourself!

My travel territories are throughout greater Chicago, Illinois and Northern Ohio including the greater Columbus and greater Cleveland areas.

As a former tour guide for UK, I recommend you visit the campus if you are able. It is a great way to see what the University of Kentucky can offer you. While you are here, feel free to contact me!
