Meet Joe Wiley

Joe Wiley

I am from Lexington, Kentucky and have worked for UK for almost seven years.  I have been married three and a half years and my wife and I welcomed our first child into this world in January.  I am an avid Cincinnati Reds baseball fan and enjoy watching UK football games.

1. What do you do in your spare time? 

In my spare time, I play on an adult baseball team in town.  I enjoy writing, exercising, and spending time with family.  

2. What is your favorite movie or book?

My favorite movie is O'Brother Where Art Thou?  In my opinion, this movie was the most superbly written and acted movie ever devised since the creation of cinema.  Gopher, Everett? 

3. What is the most interesting place you've been?  

The most interesting place I have been has been Chiloteca, Honduras.  I went with a team in college that worked with small business owners who had micro loans.  We advised them on business practices.  It was a humbling experience because of the extreme poverty and scorching heat.  

4. What is your favorite food?

My favorite food is shepherd's pie but spaghetti with meat sauce is a close second.  

5. What is your favorite memory? 

My favorite memories have been my wedding day and the birth of my child.
