At age 12, my family moved from Oakland, California, to Marietta, Georgia, to be closer to family and my parents’ hometowns. Upon high school graduation, I attended The University of Alabama where I received my Bachelor’s degree in public relations and a double-minor in English and human and environmental sciences. Although I’m not originally from Alabama, I consider the state to be my home. While working in the Governor’s Office, I had the opportunity to travel across our beautiful state and meet people from every walk of life. This experience gave me a look into what truly makes Alabama special: our people.
