About Kristen Partridge


Kristen Partridge loves to be part of the “AHA!” moments in life- especially the ones she gets to experience when working with high school and college students. She serves as the Associate Vice President and Associate Dean of Students at the University of Oklahoma.

She received her Bachelor of Science in Education in 1999 and her Masters in Human Relations and Organizational Leadership in 2008. She began her career in student activities at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond and later returned to OU where for the past 15 years she served as Union Programming Coordinator, advisor to the Campus Activities Council, and the Director of Student Life.

In 2012, Kristen was honored to receive the Sullivant Prize for Perceptivity, given by the Inasmuch Foundation established by Edith Kinney Gaylord. Kristen’s focus is promoting leadership development and enhancing self-awareness in every person she meets. She speaks to thousands of students every year about becoming “You 2.0,” the best possible versions of themselves.   

Her husband Casey works as Director of the Sooner Success Life coaching program. In 2015 they adopted their hilarious three year old son Sam. They live in Norman and enjoy reading, traveling and cheering on the Oklahoma Sooners, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
