    I was raised in Plano, Texas and graduated from Auburn University in May 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with a concentration in crime and deviance. In the future, I hope to go into law enforcement with an emphasis in criminal investigation or crime analysis. My research interests include policing, offender profiling, violent crime, and deterrence strategies. In my free time, you can find me watching true crime documentaries, relaxing in a body of water, or spending time with my dog.

    I’m from Plano, TX, a town near Dallas. I applied to Texas State University as an Interdisciplinary Studies major then in my first semester I changed to a Biology major, after a year there I finally switched to Criminal Justice and it was a perfect fit. I'm currently not sure what the future plans are for me, but the criminal justice field is where I'm supposed to be.

    Born and raised in Austin, Texas, I decided to attend TXST for its Criminal Justice program after finishing high school. Halfway through my bachelor’s degree, I realized I also wanted attain my master’s degree, so here I am. Along with being a graduate assistant, I am also the president of an organization on campus named FACES (Foster Care Alumni creating Educational Success). As a first-year master student, I’m still learning the ropes and looking for what peaks my interest, but still trying to settle on one specific career goal. I’ve worked hard to get to where I am today, and I’d like to thank all of those who have helped me in this journey. Excited to see what the future has in store for me!
