Focus: Journalism

Role: Social Media and Photo Editor

High School: Conner High School




This will be my third year here at NKU, but my first year being a part of the journalism workshop.

I have a background in several different kinds of media, including video, design, and social media, and I believe that these will help me be successful as a mentor this year.

After my freshman year, I decided that Media Informatics was a better fit for myself, instead of Electronic Media & Broadcasting, which was my passion in high school. During high school, I was part of the Media Team and Yearbook Committee where I was an on-air broadcaster for the morning announcements, I created multitudes of videos for sporting events, school events, and media competitions, and I helped create the school’s first electronic yearbook.

During my time at NKU, I haven’t been very involved until recently. Becoming a mentor this year has been part of my start to become more involved on campus, but I also took on the job of being a peer coach in the Informatics Advising Center where I help students have a successful college career.

Outside of school and media, I enjoy working on cars and cooking. I have helped build a race car that competes in the quarter mile across the tristate. I also work at Strong’s Brick Oven Pizzeria in Hebron, Ky., as a cook and a server where I put my skills to good use and help make homemade sauces.

After college, I plan to work locally as a web designer or social media strategist, but ultimately I would like to go back to school and get a master’s in education, so that I can go back and teach at my old high school.


Favorite social media: My favorite social media is Pinterest because I love having the ability to pin different recipes and DIY ideas that I can go back and make them when I have time!

Dream job: My dream job would probably be opening my own restaurant where I can make fresh and homemade food!

Interesting fact: I am a girl who likes to work on cars. I don’t mind getting greasy and being arm deep in motor oil. And I can get them to run!!!
