Summary

Hello! By now you have seen a small portion of information about myself, and have noticed three social media sites above. I have included these here for your convenience, and also to make sure you are looking at the right person on websites. It is crazy how our world is today, and many people who are nothing like me may have the same name on social media. I keep things appropriate and always try to be a positive influence on those around me. I attend Georgia Southern University for Nursing and am an active member in Zeta Tau Alpha's philanthropy, Breast Cancer Education and Awareness. I find happiness in making others smile, and my favorite thing to do is meet new people. A fun fact about myself is I do not meet a stranger, and if I stop to eat alone I am likely to find a stranger also alone and ask if I can join them for lunch. My mindset is you never know what someone is going through and they might just need to have a conversation with someone who knows nothing about them.
