I was born and raised in the upstate of South Carolina. I am a life long Lutheran. I attended Byrnes High School and graduated in 2012. My education continued at The Citadel, where I majored in Social Studies Education. During college, I spent two of my summers working as a counselor at Lutheridge in Arden, NC. I now work at Byrnes High School as a History teacher and as the Youth Director at Joy.
