Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." — Christopher Robin
Kaitlyn Maines-Presley was born in Portsmouth, N.H., but did not stay there for long. Her dad is a Marine, so she has moved around every two or three years her entire life. She has lived in New Hampshire, Maine, California (three different times), Alabama, Tennessee, Japan and South Carolina. After settling into South Carolina, she chose to attend Coastal Carolina University, where she earned a degree in communication. Immediately after graduation, Maines-Presley jumped into the MALS program and earned her master's degree in liberal studies. While in her master's program, she realized that she had a passion for teaching and higher education (big ah-hah moment). After graduation, Maines-Presley began her higher education career in the Office of Admissions as an admissions counselor and then transitioned into academic advising. When she is not at CCU, she likes to relax with her two cats.
