  • Wixom, Michigan

Personal Interests:

  • I like running, watching true crime documentaries on Netflix, and hanging out with my cats and husband Sam. I also enjoy spending time with friends and I am always down for team trivia or some friendly competition in a round of Mario Kart. My favorite season is fall because of college football (Go Green! Go Vols!) and I love to make and eat all kinds of tailgate treats.


  • Bachelor of Arts, Communication with a specialization in Public Relations, Michigan State University

Favorite Quote:

  • "Sometimes, you gotta work a little so you can ball a lot." - Tom Haverford, Parks and Recreation
