Position Title: 
Student Ambassador
Department: 

Hi everyone! My name is Ellie Fahey and I am a junior with a major in Human Health Sciences on the Pre-PA track. I also am working towards a minor in Health Promotion and a certificate in Universal Design. I am from the suburbs of Chicago and have really found my home away from home at the University of Kentucky through the College of Health Sciences. In addition to being an ambassador, I am a Best Buddies peer buddy, the Director of Philanthropy for my sorority, and the Fundraising Coordinator for Pre-PA club. I have a passion for working with people with physical and intellectual disabilities and am currently helping start a non-profit organization in my hometown called Gerry’s Cafe in which we will employ adults with disabilities. I hope to use my experiences at UK and at home to help this underserved population in my future career. I am so excited to share my experiences and all the endless opportunities with prospective students and act as a guide as they make the decision to attend UK! Attending the University of Kentucky and joining the College of Health Sciences is one of the best decisions I have ever made and I can’t wait to help others make that same decision as an ambassador did for me a few years back. Feel free to reach out with any questions!
