I graduated with a Master's of Education in Student Affairs and College Counseling in 2015 and completed a Bachelor's of Business Administration in Marketing in 2013. Currently I am pursuing my doctorate degree in Higher Education at the University of Arkansas. As a student, I held leadership positions in a variety of student organizations including Phi Mu Fraternity and the Student Ambassadors. I have completed various internships in counseling and higher education settings. My favorite interests are playing with my rescue dog, dancing, and spending time with my friends and family.

I graduated from Hendrix College in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in English and Film Studies. During my time in school, I was a leader of both our Film Society and our Hendrix Ambassadors. I love heading out on a road trip, going on a hike with my dog, or simply staying in and curling up with a great film.

I'm a proud alumni of UAFS. Many people think I'm crazy for graduating with Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, but it's honestly engraved in my heart. Throughout my academic career, I was a university ambassador and I was a part of the glorious Chemistry club. I am very fond of my two dogs (they're my babies!), I thrive in the outdoors, and I love researching upcoming cosmetic trends/products!
