Nashville’s Dr. Kittie Myatt Receives Rachel Jackson Award

Dr. Kittie Myatt, department chair and associate professor in Counseling in the College of Counseling, Psychology and Social Sciences at Argosy University, Nashville was recently announced as a finalist for the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority’s Rachel Jackson Award in the category “Keeper of the Flame.” The awards ceremony recognizes outstanding women in the Donelson-Hermitage-Old Hickory communities of the city and is hosted by the Donelson-Hermitage Chamber of Commerce.

2017 is the inaugural year for the Rachel Jackson Awards. Three local women were celebrated by being presented with the Financial Partner's Keeper of the Flame Award, the Master Gardener Award, and the Boot Strap Award. Dr. Myatt received her award on August 11, 2017. The award is described by the chamber of commerce as “recognizing a woman who does what she does to help others because it is the right thing to do. She gives monetarily; she gives of herself; she sacrifices so that others can ‘have.’ This award winner leads with quiet dignity.”

Dr. Myatt has worked as a licensed professional mental health service provider since 1983 and had a full-time private counseling practice in Nashville for 20 years. She’s been a member of the Argosy University, Nashville faculty for 15 years.
