Emily Maggard

Visitor Services Associate



Emily is one of our front-line staff members and often is the first person visitors meet when they come to KHS. That suits her fine. “I love welcoming and interacting with new guests and explaining what KHS has to offer as we continue to grow and represent Kentucky – and hearing some of their stories,” she says.

While we know Emily enjoys working with her colleagues at KHS, there is one person she would love to meet and work with who is not here: Nellie Bly, the late-19th century journalist, inventor and adventurist also known for her charity work. “Energy rightly applied and directed will accomplish anything,” a quote from the intrepid Bly, is one of Emily’s favorites.

Staff member since 2016.
