Auburn Women

Auburn is more than just a place I received my education, Auburn is home to me. I grew up in Alpharetta knowing that I did not want to attend the university of Georgia. Most of my friends were bulldogs and I wanted something different. One day, I called up a friend who I knew loved auburn. I asked if it would be alright for me to come visit for the weekend. My dad drove me down and that was my first real taste of the plains. I was instantly hooked! The tradition, the small charming town, and some of the most beautiful sunsets I have seen. I knew this would be the place for me.

In the first year of school, I was blessed to meet such wonderful friends who have shaped me into the woman I am today. I received a degree in International business and worked with the study abroad programs to help recruit students to experience the world. Once I graduated, I decided to stay in Auburn and attend nursing school.

I lived in Auburn for 9 years before moving back home to Atlanta. I carried my love for Auburn everywhere including as a nurse. I always wear my auburn badge hoping I can strike up good conversation with them and take their mind off of them being in a hospital bed. I was able to connect a patient with some football players when he was sick and dying. Auburn means so much to me and I am so glad I am a part of this family!
