I have been with United Way of Northeast Mississippi since 2012. I am a graduate of Nettleton High School and the University of Mississippi, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English. I completed my master’s in Nonprofit Management at Northeastern University in 2018.
I was recently named Person of the Year in the Daily Journal’s Top 40 Under 40 for 2020. I serve the Public Relations Association of Mississippi as president of the Northeast chapter and Vice-President of Student Services for the state. I helped to found Groundswell (United Way’s young leadership donor affinity group) and Volunteer Northeast Mississippi, and am a member of the Early Childhood Coalition, Tupelo Young Professionals, THS Band Boosters, and the Southern Public Relations Federation.
I live in Tupelo with my husband, Brad, my son, Jacob, and two cats, Darwin and Claude.
