- College: Appalachian State University
- Major: Secondary English Education
I grew up in rural North Carolina and was raised in an environment that treasured writing and reading. As a result, I developed a passion for literature. I carried that into a major in Secondary English Education in my undergraduate studies at Appalachian State University, and have since engaged in a career teaching high school English for the past five years. I am now pursuing a masters degree in Professional Writing through Liberty University Online while still continuing my teaching career. I am also working on finishing my first novel, which I hope to have published by the end of the year.
