I graduated from Nicholls State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Mass Communication. While studying at NSU, I also worked as a writer/reporter for the campus publication, The Nicholls Worth.
Following graduation, I chose to focus my time and energy on my family and raising my two young children. During that time, I pursued my passion for health and fitness and became a certified personal trainer. Not only was I able to be compensated for doing what I love, but I was also able to help others become healthy and reach goals they weren’t able to achieve on their own! Such a rewarding experience!
After a short venture as a personal trainer, I moved to Baton Rouge in hopes of finding an opportunity to work within my degree field, as well as to continue helping others. Becoming a part of the LRTA staff has satisfied both respects–I am able to do what I love and studied to do, as well as be part of an association that helps to support and defend retirees and their benefits.
In my spare time, I enjoy exercising, cooking, gardening, running, doing arts and crafts, and shopping. However, my favorite way to pass the time is chasing after my two active boys and playing dress up with my new baby girl!
