Meet Jessica Buchanan

Jessica Buchanan has been hired as Special Assistant for Strategic Initiatives. She will work directly with President Faulkner in developing community partnerships and special projects.

“It’s all about collaboration,” Buchanan said. “I’ll be making partnerships in the campus community and working on initiatives that cross academic divisions. I think a large part of my job is listening; trying to understand what people need.”

Buchanan comes most recently from Be Better Advertising in Franklin where she was operations and data analyst. She was assistant director for Student Success Services and Career Services at Midway University in Kentucky. She has also held career development positions at Berea College in Kentucky and Polk State College in Florida.

“I like this community," she said. "My boyfriend lives here in Sumner County and he graduated from Vol State last May. I was here for the graduation and I looked around and thought the campus looked pretty amazing.”

Jessica holds a Bachelor of Arts in English and Communication Arts from Warner University and a Master of Science in Information Technology from Florida State University.
