Penn State New Kensington alumnus Kristen Guy was named to the list of the 2013 Fab 40. Guy was honored at a reception in the spring.

Sponsored by the New Pittsburgh Courier, one of the oldest black newspapers in the United States, the Fab 40 honors 40 of Pittsburgh’s young African-American professionals under the age of 40. Guy was nominated for the award by the Urban League Young Professionals of Greater Pittsburgh where she is co-chair of the Community Service committee. She was selected for making a positive impact on the community.

“I was very humbled and excited,” Guy said. “It was awesome to be among others that are serving the community.”

An employee relations manager for Intermedix Corp, Guy has nine years of experience as a human resource professional. Before joining Intermedix, a provider of technology solutions for the healthcare business, Guy was a human resource consultant for UPMC Physician Services and human resources coordinator for Tervita.

Guy earned her bachelor’s degree in Applied Psychology in 2006. She holds a master’s degree in Professional Leadership from Carlow University. She credits her undergraduate days for her career successes.

“Penn State New Kensington was beneficial to me because it gave me the base knowledge of how organizations work,” said Guy, who was president of the Multicultural Club at the campus. “It helped me to learn how to operate professionally in different organizations.”

A resident of Arnold, Guy is active in the community. Besides her work for the Urban League, she is a mentor for the Bridging the Gap program.
