Ms. Kimberly Hamby Townsend

K. Hamby

Kimberly Hamby Townsend, CPA, is a 2008 magna cum laude graduate of the University of the Cumberlands.  Undoubtedly, the leadership skills she acquired while serving as president of the UC chapter of Phi Beta Lambda (business fraternity) and Secretary of our chapter of Sigma Beta Delta (business honor society) have served her well in building her career as a CPA.  While a student at UC Kim was involved with other organizations across campus, including the Student Government Association and the Sports Information Department.  Since graduating, Kim has not only passed the CPA exam, she has earned the MBA degree
from Tennessee Technological University.

In a recent conversation with Kim she said, “My degree from the University of the Cumberlands has allowed me to have a great job that I truly enjoy each and every day.  With the guidance and encouragement of the Hutton School of Business faculty and staff, I felt prepared to enter the workforce straight out of college and have success in my
chosen career.

“My four years at Cumberland were very memorable and enjoyable.  The class sizes really helped me get ahead in my education, something I believe is difficult to find at a larger university.  The knowledge and experience I gained as an accounting student at Cumberland enabled me to sit and pass the CPA exam my first year out of college, leading
to advancement with the firm by which I am employed.  I am extremely grateful to all of the professors at the University of the Cumberlands.”
