Born and bred right here in Williamsburg and fun fact, I was a navy kid who was lucky enough to never have to move. I grew up walking through Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown, leading me to walk across the stage at William & Mary Hall as a graduate of Jamestown High School. Fleeing to the city, I attended Virginia Commonwealth University in 2012 (Go Rams!) to study Business but ended up switching paths for Mass Communications as I found my passion for Public Relations and Event Planning as I spent the summers working as a conference assistant. I had always enjoyed throwing a party with my mom but it was a different perspective that I was enthralled with. Those summers lead me to seek an internship with VCU Conference and Scheduling Services that grew into a position as a Conference Coordinator. Living in the city is fun but Williamsburg has always held a special place in me that I decided to move home and give back to the community that shaped me. I worked briefly at The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and moved over to William & Mary to join the Tribe.
If you do not see me at work, I can guarantee that you will see me at either Target or Home Goods. I enjoy window shopping for the infamous "dream house". Going out with friends and family to dinner and a movie are always at the top of my list. I am a Bravo-holic and can chat about pop culture and what happened on Grey's Anatomy.
The Outer Banks and New York City both share a spot in my life as my favorite getaways. The beach is calm and relaxing, where you can get away from it all and work on a tan. The city is full of energy and unexpected adventures. They truly are the best of both worlds.
“Sometimes the future changes quickly and completely, and we’re left with only the choice of what to do next. We can choose to be afraid of it, to stand there trembling not moving, assuming the worst that can happen or we step forward into the unknown and assume it will be brilliant.” – Cristina Yang
