about me

Tennessee has been home to me my entire life. I was born in Knoxville, but I've lived in Johnson City the majority of my life. I always said I would move as soon as I graduated high school, but like many of my peers I ended up at East Tennessee State University. ETSU was the best option financially, so here I am. Initially I was not thrilled to be attending school here, but now I couldn't imagine going anywhere else! I'm currently a junior majoring in media and communications. My concentration is advertising and public relations with a minor in marketing. Deciding on a major was not an easy choice for me. Decision making is not my forte and after changing my majorĀ three times I finally found one I really love!


Family is really important to me! I've been blessed with the best family and I love spending time with them. I have 3 siblings. A 23 yr. old brother, an identical twin sister, and a 9 year old brother. Growing up with a twin has been amazing and I've always had a best friend with me. No, we haven't pulled a parent trap and switched places. Oh, and we can't read each other's minds. (We're twins not aliens)


I love traveling and going new places! Last week I went to N.Y.C. with my best friends and it was so much fun to explore. This was definitely my favorite trip I've taken to the city so far. DUMBO (far left), down under Manhattan Bridge overpass, was a really neat neighborhood in Brooklyn and great for taking pictures. I would move there just for the pizza if I could! (If you're a Gossip Girl fan this is where Dan Humphrey lived in the far left picture above..XOXO Gossip Girl)
I consider myself somewhat of a Disney connoisseur. My family is a little obsessed. We've gone every year since I was born and it's one of my favorite vacations we take as a family. My mom even has a "Disney shrine" as I call it, in our home devoted to pictures and memorabilia from previous trips.

I joined my sorority, Sigma Kappa, my freshman year and it's one of the best decisions I've made! My sisters are my biggest support system. I have so many wonderful memories and lifelong friends because of Sigma Kappa!
