OUR DREAM TEAM
Public Health Intern
My name is Kaylnn Pitts, and I’m a Public Health Graduate student specializing in fitness coaching and health education. I consider myself to be an influencer and innovator when it comes to bringing new ideas that challenge the status quo.
I have a passion for creating, engaging, and implementing effective enrichment health programs for children and adults while maintaining a proven track record of recruiting and mentoring. I also have a decade of experience in community engagement, leadership, and health.
I currently work as a Track and Field Coach at Maryville College, where I and two other coaches started up the brand-new women’s track program. It was a successful first year for the team, and I was able to finish the season with two men conference champions.
I plan to continue to create change in my community by creating safe places for those in need.
