Karlee returns to Clarksville as our Downtown Director. She is responsible for assisting businesses in our downtown area and helping organize events to help bring our community together. Some of her key responsibilities include: assisting in revitalization, programs, events, projects, and other opportunities in Downtown Clarksville.
Karlee previously lived in Clarksville for 6 years, and graduated from University of the Ozarks in 2018, with Bachelors’ Degrees in Business Management in Biology Wildlife/Ecology. Following her tenure at Ozarks, she was welcomed on board at the Chamber as the Administrative Assistant, and eventually the Marketing & Communications Director. She then moved to Kansas, where she worked as a recruiter and academic advisor for the local college. In 2021, Karlee and her husband, Sam, moved back to the area to plant their roots and make Clarksville home.
Some of her favorite things to do in the area are floating the rivers and taking day trips to the mountains. She loves all things outdoors, live music, and spending time with her fur babies. If you are a business downtown or are looking to make an impact on our Main Street area, please contact her!
