Profile

Hometown Ashburn, Virginia
College and major West Virginia University - B.S. sport management with a minor in advertising
As a kid, you dreamed of becoming: A veterinarian
Name one thing on your bucket list Hang out with the Robertsons from Duck Dynasty
If you were an animal, what would you be? A polar bear so I could hang out with Chubby all day, duh!
First CD/tape *N sync - the self-titled debut album, which I still have
Favorite food Onions. No meal is complete without them
Favorite movie Hocus Pocus
Favorite pro/college sports team The one and only West Virginia University (located in the actual state of West Virginia, not the western part of Virginia like ESPN thinks it is). My favorite professional team is the Washington Nationals, but I'm also a fan of anyone playing against the Yankees, the Cowboys, or the University of Pittsburgh
Favorite type of music Country, but I like pretty much everything
Favorite band There are too many to name, but the Blackberry Smoke Pandora station is my go to
Favorite book Any book written by or about the Robertsons. I seriously love Duck Dynasty.
Fun fact I am a gun shootin' woman with an awesome shot. Watch out!

Also, I am a diehard WVU fan and never missed a home football game during my four years. I like to think that Country Roads is my personal anthem.
