Currently, I am a second – year graduate student at Virginia Tech pursuing a Master’s in Communication with a focus in Health Communication. In addition to my role as a full time student, I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) for two sections of Public Speaking. This program has allowed for me to pursue my research interests within the field of Health Communication, with a focus on organ donation,  while simultaneously continuing my passion for Higher Education.

In 2019, I graduated from the University of Mary Washington with a Bachelor’s in Communication and Digital Studies. Throughout my time at UMW, I was heavily involved in the Admissions department as a tour guide. Additionally, I worked as an Orientation Leader and Peer Mentor for incoming first – year and transfer students. This work, along with my roles on the Campus Programming Board fostered my love of working in Higher Education.

This website serves as a portfolio to showcase my academic work throughout my time at UMW as well as work that I am actively engaged in here at Virginia Tech.

Following my graduation in Spring of 2021, I hope to continue working in higher education as an adjunct professor for Public Speaking as this is a versatile skill that I enjoy teaching and sharing with others. Additionally, I hope to continue to be an advocate for the organ donor community through volunteer opportunities as this is a cause I feel passionately about.
