I grew up in Berea, Ky., and was home-schooled throughout my K-12 career before attending Eastern Kentucky University. I majored in psychology and minored in religion at EKU while also becoming involved with the school newspaper, The Eastern Progress, as a photographer, photo editor, copy editor, writer and columnist. I started work at The Jessamine Journal as a staff writer in October 2009 with the specific beat of covering education. I got married in January 2010 and graduated from EKU in May 2010 with a bachelor's degree in psychology. At The Journal, I added the responsibilities of features editor in April 2010 and of news designer in April 2012.
