In 2013, she graduated Magna Cum Laude from West Virginia Wesleyan College with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies and a minor in English. As a member of West Virginia Wesleyan’s Honors Program, she studied abroad in both Florence and London.

While at Wesleyan, she worked at WDTV in Clarksburg and continued there until 2015 as a multimedia journalist/digital reporter.

In her downtime, she likes to make her friends and family laugh. She’s got a knack for impersonations!
