About Me


I am a sophomore at the University of Utah currently pursuing a major in Communications, with an emphasis in Strategic Communications, as well as a minor in Political Science.  I was previously Miss Teen Ohio United States, and I am now a writer for Her Campus Utah. I enjoy outdoor activities, cooking, volunteering, traveling, and writing. I am a passionate advocate for mental health and suicide prevention.

After graduation, I plan on starting my own business. I hope to inspire more women to enter into leadership positions or become their own bosses. To learn more about me, you can add me on Linkedin.
