As a History undergrad, I did my senior thesis on the history of women at Auburn and especially focused on the Dean of Women, Katherine Cooper Cater. When I entered graduate school for my M.A. in history, I became the Graduate Assistant for the Women’s Studies Program and helped organize the Women in Politics Conference, which was a precursor to the Women’s Leadership Institute. Upon graduation, I became a victim advocate at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where I subsequently founded our Women’s Center. I have continued to serve in the role of Women’s Center Director since 2008. None of these successes would have been possible without my time spent learning at Auburn.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
