Background: I am originally from Goodlettsville, Tennessee, a suburb north of Nashville.  But I fell in love with Chattanooga during my junior year of high school. I started college at UTC in 2009 and have been here ever since! During my free time, I enjoy cooking, painting, reading, hiking with my dog, and spending time with family and friends.  My favorite things in the world are ice cream, Disney movies, sweet tea, my dog Sam Bo, and Chaco sandals. 

I love everything about Battle Academy! I am so excited for the opportunities and potential that awaits us this year!!
