LOGAN, Utah - Dr. Brian Evans, Senior Associate Athletic Director for Student-Athlete Services, announced the addition of two sport counselors on Monday in Kimi Jennings and Lauren Pietrek. Jennings will work with track & field and cross country, while Pietrek will work with women's soccer and football.
Jennings is already familiar with Utah State, having worked as an intern with student-athlete services since August of 2015, helping to advise members of the women's track & field and women's cross country teams. Prior to her internship with Utah State, Jennings was a member of the women's track & field team at Memphis, graduating Summa Cum Laude with a degree in education. Jennings later earned a masters degree in sport commerce and served as a graduate assistant within the Health and Sport Sciences department at Memphis.
“Kimi has been with us the past 10 months in an intern capacity and I couldn’t be more pleased to have her on full-time,” said Evans. “She has all the key attributes I look for in a new hire, and the coaches and student-athletes absolutely love her.”
Pietrek joins the Aggies by way of Michigan, where she worked as the lead counselor for men's and women's swimming and diving. Her tenure also included serving as an assistant academic counselor with other Wolverine teams, beginning in August of 2014. Pietrek graduated from Minnesota with a degree in global studies and sociology of law, criminology and deviance and earned a masters degree from North Central College in professional leadership.
"Lauren just spent two years at the University of Michigan under the tutelage of one of the best in the business, Phil Hughes," Evans said. "Her experience, personality and demeanor make her an absolutely great fit for us.”
Jennings assumed her responsibilities on July 5, while Pietrek began her tenure on July 11.
