Cori Keller Joins Baptist Health as Physician Relations Representative

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. –  Cori Keller, who most recently held the title of Miss Arkansas 2023, has joined Baptist Health as a physician relations representative.

Keller, a Stuttgart native, is a two-time graduate of Arkansas State University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise science and a master’s degree in radio/TV mass communications.

As Miss Arkansas 2023, Keller devoted much of her advocacy to two primary initiatives – heart health and childhood hunger. 

Her father’s own personal journey served as a key contributor in her heart health advocacy. The night Keller was crowned, her father, Lynn, was unable to attend the competition in person after being hospitalized at Baptist Health with open heart surgery complications. 

Keller has been involved in lobbying, volunteering, marketing and fundraising for the American Heart Association. She and her father are additionally featured in Baptist Health’s latest brand marketing campaign.

As an ambassador and volunteer with the Arkansas Foodbank, Keller worked to help children get the nutritious food they need to grow, learn and develop into leaders of tomorrow. 

Before joining Baptist Health and her service as Arkansas’ official goodwill ambassador, Keller worked as an account coordinator for Little Rock-based advertising agency CJRW and as a freelance reporter for ESPN. 

During her time with ESPN, Keller provided analysis and sideline reporting for her alma mater as well as the University of Memphis and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
