Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, I arrived in Knoxville to begin my undergraduate career at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in 2006. I earned my Bachelors of Science in communication in December 2010. I majored in public relations and minored in business administration. I am currently pursuing my Masters of Science in communication from UT while working in the Office of Communications and Marketing on campus.
My professional interests include higher education communications with a focus on the use of digital communication to reach specific audiences.
In my role as coordinator for student communications, I plan and execute various communications initiatives for campus departments and units to the more than 27,000 students and other campus stakeholders.I am also a member of the university’s social media team and assist our event staff with the promotion of and execution of campus events.
Before arriving back on campus to work at UT, I worked at Visit Knoxville (Knoxville Convention & Visitor Bureau). I served as a communications manager and web communications manager.
In my spare time, I enjoy watching reality TV, pinning ideas on Pinterest, and hanging out with my dog Winnie and my cat Mo.
