I was born a fourth generation Floridian in the small town of Eustis. In life I've always been a Daddy's girl, I strive to be as nurturing as my Momma and my brother is my partner in crime. We moved to Newnan when I was 10 years old, and I fell under the charm of sweet and southern Georgia.
During my senior year of high school I toured Auburn University and made the decision to enroll. I grew up in a family of Gator fans, so orange and blue have always been beloved, but being an out-of-state student, I wasn't quite sure I had made the right decision. At one point during my Camp War Eagle session, Auburn's freshmen orientation, the counselors stood arm-in-arm and recited the Auburn Creed. As I listened to the values my institution cherished, there was no longer any doubt.
I knew that Auburn was my new home.
My time at Auburn taught me the value of a determined work ethic, the importance of diversity, the appreciation of a dedicated support system and the significance of self-reflection. I graduated May 10, 2015 with a degree in public relations and a minor in leadership studies, and I currently live in the Birmingham, Alabama area.
Since graduation, I was hired at Faces in August 2015 as the company's first marketing specialist, where I am responsible for activities designed to grow the company's share of the visual communications market and to promote the Faces brand across print and electronic mediums. While at Faces, I've enjoyed expanding the company's marketing to incorporate a more personal brand. My experiences in regional and international Elite, or emerging leadership, programs within the industry has made me a more focused industry professional and I've developed lasting relationships and a love for the industry as a whole.
I want to use my passion for intentional relationships and communication talents to serve others in the field of public relations.
My interests include painting, spending time outdoors, any excuse to watch a movie and if you throw the word "adventure" in your proposition, you're more likely to gain my involvement. You'll often find me snuggled up on the couch with both dogs and my cat reading one of my favorite books.
I strive to be an optimist and to find beauty in the little things. I believe that community is essential and above all else, love and hope bring the promise of better days ahead.
