KORTNYE HURST BIOGRAPHY & FAREWELL
Kortnye Hurst’s unique insight in public relations and strategic marketing have brought her numerous commissions, including work with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, a marketing internship with Adventist Health West, and as a reporter for the 2010 quinquennial legislative session of the General Conference of Seventh day Adventists in Atlanta, Georgia.
Kortnye finds zest in healthful living. Having placed as the runner-up in a 2009 sprint-distance triathlon, Kortnye says, “My body is the greatest instrument I will ever own…”
In 2011, Kortnye worked as the Marketing and PR Assistant for LearningRx in Lincoln, Nebraska, where she helped boost that location’s enrollment into the 20th percentile among other LearningRx locations nationally. She supplemented her activities by teaching violin, voice and piano lessons. During this time, she was voted into the role of Associate VP of Recruitment for the Society of Adventist Communicators. In 2012, fellow board members nominated her as the VP of Recruitment.
Kortnye recently resigned from her post as the Communication Secretary for the Indiana Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
During her time serving Indiana constituents, Kortnye aided the 2013/2014 Indianapolis Health Initiative now supported by the White House and inspiring health ministry through the North American Division. She also redesigned the conference’s visual communication outlets, including indysda.org, and the Conference Connection, the conference’s quarterly publication receiving honorable mention during the 2012 Society of Adventist Communicators Awards in the category of Print, Newsletter.
Kortnye seeks to further her professional development while perusing a master’s degree. The Indiana Conference wishes her well as she takes the next step in her bright future.
