Ms. Knepp, an East Preston Senior High School graduate, was recruited to Garrett College to play women's basketball. She was named first-team all-NJCAA Region XX, second-team all-Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference (MD JUCO), and was selected for two MD JUCO all-tournament teams. Ms. Knepp led the 1990-91 Lakers to their first state tournament title game appearance. In 2018, she was inducted into the Garrett College Athletics Hall of Fame. She was a college work-study student in the office of President Dr. Steve Herman – her initial connection with the President's Office.

"I love Garrett College and I thought it would be a great place to work," recalled Ms. Knepp. "I liked that it was local with good people and a wonderful atmosphere."

Ms. Knepp said she has stayed at GC because "I like what I do and I like helping people."

Ms. Knepp and her husband, Bill, reside on a farm in Garrett County and enjoy biking and skiing.
