Being an Auburn University woman is a privilege. I feel beyond blessed to be an Alumni of Auburn University and believe that my days on campus, and even after, serving as an Auburn Alumni Club President have shaped who I am today. The Greek life community and being an Alpha Chi Omega, still active today, taught me how to be a real strong woman of integrity. As a Mass Communications student, my experiences at Auburn helped put me in a position to get hired by ESPN who I still work for, almost twelve years after working my first Auburn football game broadcast. As a woman in a male dominated field, I strive to set myself apart and pave the way for other women who want to work in sports broadcasting.
Not only has Auburn helped shaped my career, but it also helped build a family. I was fortunate enough to marry an Auburn man. When we had our first child, I wrote a children’s book, My First Auburn Baseball Book, so our son could learn about the sport his dad played at Auburn.
I am proud to call myself an Auburn woman and hold myself to the highest standard not only because of my faith, but because I am an Auburn University woman.
