I graduated in 2013 from Furman University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a concentration in film studies.

During my undergraduate studies, I interned with Diehard Magazine, covering Greenville Drive games for their online Red Sox scouting website.

After graduation, I worked as a technical writer for SAIFE, Inc., writing condensed articles from engineering textbooks as part of SAIFE's contract with Intel.
I also worked as a freelance writer for the entertainment and lifestyle sections of The Greenville News.

Learning that my heart lies in the fast-paced environment of the newsroom, I took a full-time position as a multimedia producer for FOX Carolina News, where I wrote articles geared toward driving website traffic and engage with viewers via social media.

In early 2016 I was promoted to Digital Content Manager for FOX Carolina.

In the words of Harriet the Spy, "I want to learn everything I can, and I write down everything I see."
