Born in1993, into a military family, I grew up in the United States and abroad, as my dad was stationed in Okinawa for three years, we obviously tagged along. After he retired in 2002, we moved from Spotsylvania, VA back home to Newport, NC. I went to school in Newport attending Broad Creek Middle and Croatan High School. After I graduated high school I joined the Marine Corps, completing a five year stint as a Mortarman, and also some time working as a Chief Armory Custodian. Following my time in the Marine Corps, I worked various jobs in Wyoming and Idaho and then returned home and started college. I have been slowly and steadily pursuing becoming a Psychiatrist. I enjoy long distance running and painting. I have also developed a passion for education and community social justice.
