I was born and raised in Gallatin, Tennessee. I graduated in the top 10% of my high school class at Merrol Hyde Magnet School in Hendersonville, TN. I began attending the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) in 2011 and graduated Summa Cum Laude with my Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice in May of 2015. I also attended graduate school at UTC and received my Masters of Science in Criminal Justice in May of 2017. I decided I wanted to go to law school my junior year of college and was blessed to receive the W.E.B. Du Bois Fellowship at WVU! I am honored to be a Mountaineer, and I cannot wait for my law school journey to begin!
