Hello! My name is Karen Hedge and I am the Associate Director of Financial Aid Programs and Operations. It is my job to ensure compliance with Federal and State regulations while providing the best customer service I can to our students and their families. I oversee the financial aid counselors, front desk and file/documents area as well as act as liaison for the Graduate College within the office. I also review all Special Circumstances that are submitted.
I have held many roles within the financial aid office – beginning at the work study student level. Overall, I have more than 20 years of experience within the financial aid office.
I am a very proud, first generation, Alumni of Radford University where I received a Bachelor of Science degree. When away from the office, you will generally find me working around our cows, goats and pony on our family farm with my husband and girls. I also enjoy being a part of my church family and working with children there (and attempting to raise a joyful noise😊).
