I Am CDC - Kevin and Kristie Clarke
https://tools.cdc.gov/medialibrary/index.aspx#/media/id/415942

Kevin and I met at CDC, as members of the Epidemic Intelligence Service Class of 2011. After six months, I got up my nerve to ask her out. Our first date was to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, which is still our special place.

Hi! I'm a Digital Media Lead here at CDC. I grew up in Atlanta and, like most locals, was in awe of this exciting, larger-than-life place that I drove by nearly every day.

I joined CDC in 2005 as a Psychology Technician with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, or NIOSH. I wasn’t someone who always knew public health was for me.

Almost 4 years ago, I landed at CDC in the Injury Center in an unconventional way. I’ve always loved science, and specifically the interplay between the brain and human behavior.

So I left academia...
