I was born and raised in Dothan, Alabama. I spent the best years of my life at The University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) where I earned a degree in public relations. One week after graduation, I left Alabama to find myself, culture, new people, places and things! I spent a quick summer in Nashville, TN interning and catching live music anywhere I could. Then I moved to Charlotte, NC where I got my first big job out of college in social media marketing. After a year in Charlotte my then boyfriend proposed and asked me to move to San Diego, CA with him, and of course, I said yes! I spent 2 wonderful years in SD working, learning and soaking up as much California sun as I could. And now, I’m back in Alabama still working, still learning and writing this chapter of my life!
