I was born and raised in Princeton, West Virginia, a small town in the Southernmost part of the state. As the daughter, granddaughter and niece of West Virginia University alumni, picking a college to attend was not a difficult choice. I am currently studying Public Relations with minors in History, Political Science and Appalachian Studies.
I am currently working on an EXCEL project with WVU’s honors college focusing on women in Appalachia. This multimedia project will highlight many different women and their cultural contribution to Appalachia.
I have previously served as the President and Editor-In-Chief of Her Campus at WVU. I am also a member of WVU’s Collegiate 4-H club where I serve as the fundraising chair. In addition to writing, I also enjoy photography and graphic design. Featured pieces of my work can be found through the tabs on my site.
When I am not in class, I work as a ticketing and publicity intern for WVU Arts and Entertainment. As a ticketing intern, I sell tickets to students and members of the community to the various shows put on at WVU. As a publicity intern, I help to promote the nationally touring shows that perform at WVU.
Additionally, I work as a News Intern for WVU’s University Relations. In this role, I distribute content to WVU’s external audience of media outlets and research publications. Additonally, I curate written pieces to be published in WVUToday.
After finishing my undergraduate degree, I am unsure of what I will pursue next. Ideally, I would like to stay in West Virginia; I have a deep love for my state and I want to give back to it in any way that I can.
