University of Nevada, Reno Extension is excited to welcome Molly Malloy as the marketing coordinator for the Clark County office.
As marketing coordinator, Malloy’s role is to oversee all the marketing and communication efforts for Extension in Clark County. Since starting, she has worked to learn about the wide variety of programming that Extension offers and to identify opportunities for improvement in the communication efforts for the organization.
Much of Malloy’s work will be to provide internal support to programs and develop strategies to bring greater awareness about Extension’s programs for the community. This effort includes working with the communication team to develop marketing materials that highlight Extension’s offerings and showcase its value to the community.
Malloy graduated from the University’s Reynolds School of Journalism with an emphasis in public relations and has worked in multiple marketing positions, including serving as account supervisor for a full-service marketing and communications firm in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In that role, she helped to develop an award-winning campaign to combat the opioid crisis in the state and gained experience working with clients in numerous industries. She has also done marketing work for the Las Vegas Clark County Library District, where she helped develop a partnership with the Vegas Golden Knights.
“Molly is an asset that will help further our reach across Clark County and help local citizens better understand how our programs can help meet their needs,” Eric Killian, Extension southern area director, said.
As part of her effort to raise awareness of Extension’s programs, Malloy is working on a Clark County newsletter aimed at stakeholders in the community that she hopes will further educate others about what Extension has to offer the county.
“Being in the position to promote such a fantastic resource in Las Vegas and work for my alma mater is an extremely exciting opportunity,” Malloy said. “This position provides purpose and works to improve the lives of the people in the community. I’m looking forward to making sure Las Vegans take advantage of all Extension has to offer.”
