We can't wait to have the Lt. Governor Jenean Hampton speak to Danville High School Thursday.

Lt. Gov. Hampton was born in 1958 in inner-city Detroit into a financially humble household. Despite watching her mother struggle to raise four girls, Lieutenant Governor Hampton knew she was blessed to live in a nation where people could rise from poverty.

After earning an Industrial Engineering degree in 1985, Lieutenant Governor Hampton joined the U.S. Air Force as a computer systems officer, writing computer code and testing software. Her seven years of military service included a tour of duty in Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Storm.

Following her military service, Lieutenant Governor Hampton began a 19-year career in the corrugated packaging industry. She started as a crew supervisor on the production floor and was soon promoted to other positions, rising to plant manager. In 2003, Lieutenant Governor Hampton moved to Bowling Green, where she continued her career in the corrugated packaging industry. At that time, Lieutenant Governor Hampton knew Kentucky was the place where she wanted to spend her life…and help improve the lives of others.

In 2014, Lieutenant Governor Hampton decided to jump into the political arena, running for the Kentucky State House. In 2015, she was approached by Governor Matt Bevin to be his running mate. In just a short time, she and the Governor have already started working on tangible solutions to major issues that hamper Kentucky’s growth.
Lieutenant Governor Hampton is married to retired U.S. Air Force Colonel Dr. Doyle Isaak. They reside in Bowling Green.
