Personal Information

Each year, I volunteer for the East Tennessee Children’s Hospital telethon and phone-a-thon as well as the Ronald McDonald House of Greater Chattanooga telethon. I am on the Board of Directors for Distinguished Young Women of Rhea County where I primarily do communications, marketing, and public relations. I am an active member of Sevier Heights Baptist Church where I serve in the children’s ministry.

Outside Interests/Hobbies

During my free time, I love hanging out with my friends and family, playing tennis, traveling, shopping, and have a new found love in hiking. I’m a reality TV and pop culture guru. Ask me anything. Surprising to many, I am a HUGE fan of any sport. You can always count on me to have a fun fact about the team or sport we are watching, but I will always live and breathe orange. I have made it my goal to visit every SEC football stadium within the next five years. (I am more than halfway there.)

What You Enjoy about Working with Students

Every student has a unique and interesting story. When talking to students, I get to see how they got to where they are now and then I am able to help them get where they want to be. Being a former student, I love being able to meet students and hear their stories and then offer help and advice to make their UT experience as amazing as mine.
