Education: B.A., Digital Media, Buena Vista University, 2020


I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, and lived there until I was 19 years old. I moved to Storm Lake, Iowa, with my family, and began my sophomore year of college at Buena Vista University. While at BVU, I had the opportunity to travel, maintain several leadership positions in student organizations, and serve on the state and international level. I graduated from BVU in 2020 with a bachelor’s in Digital Media and a minor in Communication Studies. I moved to Ames at the beginning of August 2020 with my puppy, Blue Belle.


Hometown: Dallas, Texas

Research/Professional Areas of Interest: focus on poverty/social injustices and how they relate to non-profit organizations; audio storytelling

Hobbies: I enjoy reading, volunteering at the Ames Food Bank, watching movies, and playing with my puppy.

#WhyGreenlee: I chose Greenlee because I wanted to pursue a master’s degree in the field of journalism, and I had a lot of my professors recommend the Greenlee school! One of my favorite undergraduate professors actually attended Greenlee for her master’s degree!
