Kay Johnson starts her 12th year with the University of North Texas Athletic Department. She has worked in various positions within the athletic department but has served as the student-athlete insurance coordinator for the last seven years.
She earned her associate of arts degree in secretarial science from Eastern New Mexico University and went on to work as a legal assistant for Shell Oil Company and a law firm in West Texas before becoming administrative assistant/human resources manager for the Toys "R" Us Distribution Center in Carrollton, Texas. Along the way she did substitute teaching and taught sixth grade for one semester.
At North Texas, Johnson is responsible for gathering student athlete-insurance information and coordinating benefits and payments with the providers.
Kay and her husband, Jeff Johnson, are glad to be Mean Green fans.
