I'm a junior communication major focusing on public relations writing and employed with Communication & Marketing Services. I consider myself very blessed to be able to use the Writing Center as a forum to talk with other students about what I enjoy most: idea writing.

A few of my favorite things include bonfires, babies, swimming and boating, sushi, creating, coffee, and making lists; but above all, I feel most fulfilled when communicating through writing. It allows me to express my thoughts and ideas more effectively than I could ever speak them aloud. To me, there's nothing better than finding just the right words to convey all the mind's complexities. I want to inspire others to love the craft of writing as much as I do or, at the least, not feel inhibited by their ability to express thoughts through written word.

Favorite books: Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters & The Great Gatsby.
