What do you like to do for fun?

I love to explore local hiking areas and find hidden gems around Alabama. When I am not outside, you will most likely find me reading a good book series or attempting to cook.

Who is someone you admire and why?
I most admire my grandmother. She instilled in me a heart of service from a young age, and I am constantly inspired by her kindness and drive to continually live a selfless life.

What was your most meaningful service experience or extracurricular activity in college and why?
During the height of the pandemic, I had the opportunity to serve with the UAB Hospital system to participate in COVID-19 relief efforts. I acted as a runner at a COVID testing drive-through site, handling patient check-in and preparing testing services. I am very grateful to have been able to volunteer my services at such a crazy time in order to provide assistance to hospital staff.
