I grew up on a small family farm in Middle Tennessee. We had access to lakes and state parks where we enjoyed activities such as hiking and kayaking. During college, I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and moved to West TN. I lived in Henderson, TN for my first year, and then moved to Martin, TN where I attended the University of Tennessee at Martin for the remainder of college. UT Martin provided me with opportunities to grow and become involved in the Martin community. I met the best people that became close to family!
My family, friends, and teachers have impacted my life the most. They have always pushed me to be the best version of myself.
My favorite food has always been and will always be mac and cheese!
