I am currently pursing my Masters degree at UGA in Emerging Media. I got my undergraduate degree in journalism with a certificate in entrepreneurship and a minor in studio art. I am also the graduate assistant for the Cox Institute for Management and Leadership where I work to help provide students with opportunities to become leaders in their field. I’ve found my skillset lies in entrepreneurship, media, and business analytics. To see some of the work I’ve done, you can look at my resume here. In my free time I enjoy traveling, photography, trying new restaurants in downtown Athens, any and all dogs, as well as watching the dawgs play on Saturdays!
My initial goal is to really serve and help others, and I think the best way I can do that is by pursuing things I enjoy and excel at. For me, passion and purpose go hand-in-hand. Without passion your purpose becomes dull, and without purpose your passion fizzles out. I’m committed to pursuing my purpose of loving people and making them feel accepted. That’s what drives me, and I am passionate about doing that through digital design and connecting people. Media isn’t all bad (despite how much negativity is getting covered currently), and I want to help people see the positivity and love that also is available because that’s essential for a happy life. I really enjoy graphics and the visual side of storytelling, and I would love to one day work where I’m able to tie all of the above into my work.
