About Me: I am a South Carolina native who experienced the best of both worlds in attending both Clemson and USC. But, I promise my loyalties officially lie with USC! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, playing pickleball with my friends, or cooking something new. I am a big fan of the movies, college athletics, and my in-laws' dog, Jolene. If you need a Columbia restaurant recommendation, I'm your girl!!

Advice to Students: Social media is not real life. While in college, focus on investing in your friendships, going for a lot of walks, and doing the things that bring you joy and rest. 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
