I have a passion for and am a supporter the University of Tennessee Dance Marathon. 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 currently 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.
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.
