Assistant Director, Online Student Services
Online Learning

Personal Overview

Hello, my name is Vicky Knerly. I was born & raised in Syracuse, NY, lived in Florida for 18 years (Tampa and Miami and then Tampa again), St. Simons Island, GA for 12 years, and now I live in Melbourne, FL. In my day job at Florida Tech, I am the Assistant Director of Online Student Services. That means I deal with all administrative student issues, from reviewing applications for admission to complaints to grade appeals to readmission tracking and registrations and just about anything in between. I also teach as an adjunct professor online.

In addition, I co-write novels with an author in St. Augustine, Florida. To date, we have published six novels and a short story through Suspense Publishing as e-books and have one novel in print. Our seventh novel is coming out in fall 2016.

I have a bachelor's degree in English and two masters' degrees: an MBA and a Master of Science in Acquisition & Contract Management. I completed my undergraduate degree at Florida International University in Miami, and I completed both masters' degrees right here at Florida Tech. My first master's degree was completed mainly in the classroom, but my second master's degree was completed entirely online. I am currently working on my Doctor of Business Administration here at Florida Tech with an anticipated graduation date of May 2018.
