Hi everyone! My name is Anna Harris and I am originally from the small town of Lewisburg, Kentucky. I immediately fell in love when I stepped onto this campus and became a member of the Big Blue Nation! As a recent May 2014 graduate, my wonderful undergrad experience is fresh on my mind. Apart from receiving a dual degree in Integrated Strategic Communication and Spanish, I took advantage of the opportunity to get involved in campus life by participating in events like FUSION, DanceBlue, and the National Student Advertising Competition team. I was also an active member of Delta Gamma sorority and a college ambassador for Keeneland. Although winning the 2012 NCAA National Championship comes in close second, I would have to say the highlight of my college career was spending a semester abroad in Seville, Spain and getting to travel through Europe and to Northern Africa. I even got to ride a camel over the beautiful sand dunes of the Sahara Desert! All of my experiences at UK helped prepare me for my future.  I not only gained an excellent education, but also developed my professional skill set and built lasting relationships with my fellow Wildcats.

My travel territory is the Central Kentucky region including: Bath, Bourbon, Clark, Estill, Fayette, Fleming, Garrard, Harrison, Jessamine, Madison, Mercer, Montgomery, Nicholas, Powell, Robertson, Scott and Woodford counties.
