Thank you, ryan manthey of Pure7 Studios, for my amazing headshots. You know how to make a girl feel beautiful! 

I grew up in Fairfax Station, Virginia aka "NoVa" as it's widely known—a sprawling suburbia right outside of Washington, D.C. 

After graduating from The College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia with a degree in English and a minor in Business Management, I packed my bags and headed to the icy tundra that is Upstate New York, where I earned my master's degree in Magazine, Newspaper, and Online Journalism from the Newhouse School at Syracuse University. 

Writing and storytelling have always been my passions, but I wanted to learn more about how companies brand themselves and how they create identities for clients, so I accepted a job with an advertising agency called the Sterling-Rice Group in Boulder, Colorado, where I worked as their marketing manager for three years.

My husband and I got married this past May, and then moved from Colorado to Destin, Florida where he is now stationed with the Army. 

I have one younger sister named Meredith, who is now getting her graduate degree in accounting at William & Mary (Go Tribe!) and an adorable yet goofy Siberian Husky/Border Collie rescue dog named Denver.
