I was born and raised here in Tyler, I've never called another place home. I graduated from East Texas Christian Academy in 2010, and just finished getting my associates degree from TJC. I was hired as a temporary, part-time receptionist over a year ago, and now I'm the receptionist and digital program assistant here at Townsquare Media. I am also the youngest person on staff here.

It is definitely one of the best things that has happened to me.
