I was born and raised in Chattanooga, TN where I graduated from Tyner Academy in 2009. When I arrived at Maryville College, I quickly established long lasting friendships. I graduated from Maryville College in 2013 with a double major in Business & Organization Management and Music. As a student at MC, I was involved in many activities such as being a Peer Mentor, a member of the MC Scots Pep Band and the Black Student Alliance. After graduating I worked at First Tennessee Bank and volunteered at two organizations, The Public Education Foundation and Graduate OnPoint.

Why I love MC
During my senior year in high school, I toured many college campuses many of which did not seem to be the perfect fit for me. When I came to visit Maryville College during Highland Days, it was an experience unlike any other I had at other colleges. The students at Maryville made me feel right at home, which set the school a part from my other options. At that moment I knew Maryville College was the best place for me.
Like any other freshman student I was a little nervous coming to a new place. Freshman Orientation allowed me to meet new people and create bonds with friends that will last a lifetime. The following years I was able to grow in many ways. The professors challenged me to think critically. Not only was I challenged academically, I was also able to grow as a person and as a leader.
The community here at Maryville College is similar to a really big family. Everyone supports one another to be the best person they can be and to pursue their dreams. I am extremely grateful for my experience at Maryville College and it is an honor to come back and be a part of the college again. I am very excited to work with the faculty, staff, and students again as we welcome new members of the Maryville College community.
