I'm unlike anyone you've ever met.

I was born in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and lived in South Florida until I graduated from Auburn. Most of my life was lived less than 10 miles from the ocean, but when I moved to the Deep South I became enchanted by changing seasons and rolling hills.

I thrived at Auburn, seizing opportunities to meet people from different places, learning about myself and expanding my horizons. I was lucky enough to find companions who have shaped me, inspired me and reminded me to be the best I can be. Their role in my life is undeniable, and these friendships will carry me through the rest of my life.

If people were to describe me, I would hope they would eventually say that I was strong and independent, but first I know they would say that I am a go-getter. In my studies and pursuits after college I have proven that I am unafraid of changes and taking risks. I face challenges with confidence because I know I have the skills needed to tackle even the most difficult projects. I thank my parents for instilling me with this confidence. They taught me from a young age to be independent, work with integrity and keep going up until the job is done. These principles, in combination with my education and experiences, have never steered me wrong.

My work ethic is only a small facet of my personality. At heart, I'm a quirky girl with a love for staying active and trying to eat well. Admittedly, I usually fail at the latter. In my free time I enjoy watching college football, learning new recipes to cook and catching up on all forms of social media. I'm unapologetically myself, and this shines through in all of my personal and business interactions.

For me - I feel that the future is bright. I'm not afraid of adventure and trying new things. I hope that I spend the rest of my life falling in love with cities I have only dreamed of visiting. Hopefully someday I'll travel the world. Want to know more? Let's chat about life and your favorite podcasts over coffee.
