The communications team at Victory Electric welcomes their newest team members Allison Doll and Carleigh Albers as communication coordinators.
Carleigh Albers is a native of Smolan, Kansas, and is a 2017 graduate of Fort Hays State University where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in communication studies. She joins Victory Electric from St. Francis Xavier Catholic School in Junction City where she worked as an administrative assistant. However, this isn’t her first time living in Dodge City.
“Before working in Junction City, I served as an intern for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Dodge City in the Office of Youth Ministry and the Office of Young Adult Ministry for a year,” Albers said. “It was a really great experience to incorporate my faith, serve the church and develop communications skills. I believe the internship helped prepare me to serve at Victory Electric, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to be able to work here.”
As a communication coordinator, Albers will assist with graphic and publication design projects, community relations, writing, photography and more. She will be working closely with Jerri Whitley, vice president of communications, to learn the ropes of Victory Electric’s internal and external communication processes.
In her free time, Albers enjoys traveling, spending time with her friends and country swing dancing. She is also enrolled online through the Augustine Institute located in Greenwood Village, Colorado, where she is studying to complete her master’s degree in theology.
Allison Doll was born and raised in Garden City, Kansas. After graduating from Garden City High School in 2014, Doll went on to receive a bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communications from Kansas State University. During her time at K-State, she completed two internships, one with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism and the other with the Kansas Department of Agriculture.
“I am a proud Kansan, full of passion for the state that I call home,” Doll said. “Though I love every inch of the state, I feel a special affinity for its southwest corner. Growing up in Garden I never imagined moving to Dodge City, but it was hard to deny how comfortable I felt at Victory Electric, almost like I was at home.”
“Communication is something that has always come naturally to me. I am excited to continue to use and develop my skills in this new role,” Doll said.
Doll enjoys traveling, going to concerts and cheering on the Kansas State University Wildcats.
Victory Electric is excited to have Albers and Doll join the team and look forward to their help communicating the cooperative’s mission and values to our members.
