Education

BA, Political Science, 2015

Pre-Occupation (Hobbies)

I enjoy baking, making music, enjoying time with friends and family, crafting, writing, drawing, spending time in nature, and much more.

Most Memorable SPIA Class Moment?

A couple moments stand out to me. One time one of our classes had a debate over security versus liberty, and it got pretty dramatic and comical.

My Top Three Career Tips

I would encourage them to begin networking early in their studies, at least by junior or senior year. Also, I would say to try to choose their classes early so they can really enjoy and give themselves to studying the topics. Lastly, it would probably be helpful to get involved in one of the campus organizations that interests them.

Volunteer Activities / Service on Boards

Most of the work I do right now is through the Wesley Foundation, which is full time but unpaid.

Favorite Athens Haunt & Getaway

I really love the Botanical Gardens because I like being surrounded by nature. It feels very peaceful and gives me a break from all of Athens’ commotion.
