Having recently graduated from a university that cheers for its beloved Cardinals—“the fiercest robin-sized bird in the animal kingdom,” as David Letterman used to say—our new social media coordinator has already spent the last few years reaching new heights. Now this Ball State grad soars with the rest of the Flock. She hopes that being surrounded by creative and innovative feather-rufflers (that’s us!) will encourage her to grow even more. 

When she’s not researching the most effective hashtags or working alongside clients to shape their stories for social media, you just might find her planning her next road trip to a Beyoncé concert. But she calls an even more powerful woman her hero—her mom. 

“She has been through a lot and has taught me so much about life, and I can only hope to be half the person she is one day. I’m so grateful to have her in my life, and I know that I can always count on her.”

Favorite movie line or quote: 

“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”

—Harry Potter, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban 

Choose one: One year of free Taco Bell, or $50 cash? 

I never got into Taco Bell, so I’ll take the cash.

When was the exact moment you knew you were a nerd? 

I would color-coordinate my school supplies, label all my folders and notebooks, and always had my monogrammed pencil ready for the school year.
