About Me

As a marketing major, I have always loved the idea of working for a business, whether that be working for a corporation or a small business. However, writing is one of my passions, which is where my communication and media minor come into play. I hope to work for a magazine in the future to help with their marketing strategies and also work on writing pieces. I desire to be in the magazine world because I want to be a part of helping spread awareness about current events, latest styles/trends, or personal stories. Magazines help do that because they make the material more inviting and interesting to read about. Outside of the Writing Center, I enjoy reading and thrift shopping.


I am a journalist and an ambassador for the Honors Program, and I am the Public Relations assistant committee officer for Honors Student Council. Additionally, I am the President and Editor in Chief of the Odyssey.


I am writing tutor for the Writing Center.

Favorite Spot on Campus

I enjoy spending time at the Sanctuary Cafe and the Honors Lounge!
