Master of Public Administration (MPA)
I am originally from Carrollton, Georgia and attended Carrollton High School. I am a double dawg with undergraduate degrees in international affairs and political science. I decided that I wanted to work in public service because I loved volunteering and planning service activities with Serve UGA in the Center for Leadership and Service as an undergrad. I was inspired to pursue the MPA after being accepted as a PSO Scholar and interning with the Carl Vinson Institute of Government, where I researched competencies needed for local government management. I am currently doing my practicum with the Georgia Municipal Association creating a playbook for public art initiatives in Georgia municipalities. My dream is to continue to work in local government in Georgia in some capacity, whether it be in a city or county or in some auxiliary role.
