Auburn is home to me. See I’ve always come to Auburn. My parents are Alumni and our family had season tickets to football games and baseball games when I was growing up. We’ve tailgated in the same spot by Mary Martin Hall since the 1980s. I’ve watched Auburn grow and change as I did. I came to Auburn after graduating Benjamin Russell High School in August of 2003 and began my journey as a student.

While at Auburn I joined Alpha XI Delta Sorority and met some of my very best friends. I made friends, had fun, and pursued my degree in Aerospace Engineering. I was fortunate enough to co-op with a company in Fort Walton Beach while at auburn. I was also on of the first Auburn students to be chosen for the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) program. This program gave me the opportunity to live in Germany for a year, while still earning class credit at Auburn. It was a once in a lifetime experience for me. I graduated in May 2009 with a Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering.

Auburn is many things to me. I have memories as far back and I can remember of Auburn. I’ve had good times and bad, Football games, tailgates, A-Days, baseball games, basketball games, parties, late nights studying, friendships, finding myself, and finding God here.

Without Auburn I would not be who I am today. Now, I work for the Department of the Army at Redstone Test Center in Huntsville, AL. I just received my Master of Science in Systems Engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School. I have a wonderful husband and three kids. I’ve made a home for myself and my family in Huntsville now. But for a part of me, Auburn will always be home.

War Eagle!
