Hey, it’s nice to meet you.

Here’s a little bit more about me!

I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA where I went to school in three different areas of Atlanta. I went to Texas Christian University (TCU) for undergrad and got a General Studies degree with an emphasis in Speech-Language Pathology. I am now at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology getting my Master of Divinity with a Chaplaincy concentration and a Religion and Health certificate. While I’m at Emory, I am diving deep into my area of focus in the intersectionality of mental illness and Christianity with the plan to have this drive my vocation once I graduate in 2024. Other things to know to get a sense of who I am: I’m a big coffee fan and an even bigger coffee shop fan, beach over mountains but they’re both incredible, the first three Transformers movies are tied as my favorite movies of all time, Waffle House is my favorite restaurant, and my favorite quote is “You are all of the colors in one, at full brightness.”
