I am from St. Louis and came here to go to school at SIU.
I go to school at Southern Illinois University and I am studying Health Care Management (and eventually getting a Master's degree in Health Care Administration). I am very driven and have the ambition of becoming a c-suite executive of a large hospital system. Hard work is a huge value in my life. I grew up with a very hard-working father and I got my ambitious spirit from him.

I have always had a thing for fashion, and my style continues to change as I get older! Right now, I'm stuck on a classic look and I love dressing up simple outfits with fun jewelry, but don't count me out for ruffles and frills! I'm a huge girly-girl and you can see it in most of the outfits I wear.
My "life motto" that I sort of adopted in the last year is "Gratitude Changes Everything." Whenever I'm feeling, lazy, unhappy, or unmotivated, I remind myself that I am so blessed with what I have and where I am in life. A general rule for when you are feeling ungrateful is what if you couldn't do what you don't want to do? Didn't have the opportunity to go to school, didn't have a house to clean, etc. Reminding myself of this motto has really changed my outlook on life.
I have a dog, a purebred pitbull named Knox. He has the most personality of any dog I have ever met! He is so goofy and so loving! We have him in doggy training classes right now and he's doing so well; he is such a quick learner. I love spending that time with him every week!
I like to listen to almost any kind of music, but just driving around in my car you can catch me stuck on country radio stations. I love going to country music concerts! I had the chance to go to CMA Fest this year and it was so cool.
I'm a huge Cardinals baseball fan, being from St. Louis! The birds will always be my favorite sports team.
