Meet Our Second Program Coordinator
Working as a Program Coordinator isn’t all just blogging and taking photos, it includes working with media, planning luncheons and assisting in planning tours. A lot of Hunter’s job is tourism involvement. She spends a lot of time learning about our historic sites, trails and community here in Liberty County.
“I am eager to see Liberty County from a new perspective and actually be part of a community for once. Liberty County is the only place I consider home because of the very inclusive community here. I am proud to work for the Chamber of Commerce & CVB. I can’t wait to learn everything I can about this wonderful county,” Hunter said.
Although born in Camp LeJeune, North Carolina, Hunter grew up everywhere but not anywhere because her father was active duty military. Hunter went to 4 elementary schools, 3 middle schools and 4 high schools. She graduated high school in Liberty County and lived here for 6 years after that. Maybe you recognize her from CiCi’s Pizza Buffet?
She even went to Armstrong in Savannah for a few years before moving to Louisiana where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology. Recently, Hunter has moved back to Liberty County because her husband got stationed at Fort Stewart.
Hunter has two dogs, an Australian Cattle dog named Harvey and a MinPin/Chihuahua named Jake. Her hobbies include spending quality time with her furry babies & husband and anything fashion. Thrifting, putting together outfits and decorating. Her style is definitely quirky, to say the least. She loves a good psychological thriller, documentaries and anything with Jim Carrey in it.
Hunter is still new to the Chamber but she is showing just how committed she is to learning about Liberty County. “I just want to give back to Liberty County what it gave to me: a sense of community,” Hunter says, “growing up in so many new places has its advantages and disadvantages. Advantages being adaptable, having a different perspective on life and getting to experience new places. The disadvantages are obvious: I never got to grow up in my childhood home, I had to make new friends almost every year, and we literally had to pack our whole house every year or so. Despite all of these disadvantages, I wouldn’t change the way that I grew up. The experiences I had and the people I met have shaped me into the person I am today.”
