I was born and raised in Indianapolis, IN. I’m a true native to the city, but still cannot maneuver downtown Indy very well. I currently attend Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) with hopes of majoring in exercise science with a minor in health education. My plan is to become a Cardiac Rehab Specialist in order to help her patients live a healthier life and become better informed about heart disease and exercise.

While staying on top of my schoolwork, I also work part time at Gordon Food Service. I have been there a little over two years now, where I was named the 2014 Employee of the Year.

Outside of school and work, I love to spend time with my dog, Bella. I recently became an aunt, so now all of my free time is spent spoiling my nephew.

So far, I’m very excited about my new internship at Nine13. I love the fact that I can help this program continue to develop and grow. I look forward to making a positive impact on the children I see throughout each day. As I continue with Nine13, I want to encourage children to live a healthier lifestyle, become passionate about their own health and fitness, and help to develop teamwork, confidence, and positive attitudes among the children.
