Hi there! I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. I have worked at Clayton Homes since August 2016. I went to Miami University (go Redhawks!) and was bred to love The Ohio State Buckeyes. I enjoy baking, hiking, running, playing guitar, reading, and trying out new restaurants. I also like shopping for eccentric home decorations at thrift stores and am inspired by beautiful Indian patterns. And my favorite color is glitter.
