Welcome our New Grad. Assistants

Rebecca Smith and Lindy Darnell

Hi, I'm Rebecca! I am from Ashland, KY and currently in the Master's of Public Health program.  I have a passion for helping others and finding healthier alternatives for their lifestyles! I love exploring new places and meeting new people. I have recently taken up the hobby of kayaking and have enjoyed learning the skill.  My career goals are after obtaining my master’s I want to use my knowledge and skills that I will learn, in preventing health disparities across Eastern Kentucky. I aspire to specialize in women's health and work for a nonprofit organization. I have a heart for service and would enjoy any career where I can serve others and be a resource for them. Feel free to stop by anytime, I love helping students!



Hello all, I am Lindy and I am ecstatic to be working as one of the Health Promotion and Administration Department's graduate assistants! I originally hail from New Orleans, Louisiana but now call Winchester, KY home. My passion for helping others was developed at a young age. Combining that with my interest in health is what has led me to pursue a Master's in Public Health at EKU. In my spare time I enjoy listening to live music, attending local events/festivals and anything pertaining to the outdoors! As for my career aspirations, I hope to use my skills developed in this program to make a difference in the community I work. Special interests I have within this field include - violence prevention, sexual health education, and nutrition. Stop by Begley 418 anytime and introduce yourself. I love making new friends!
