If you could invent a holiday, it would definitely involve ______________?

My holiday would focus on my two favorite things – National Napping and Puppy Play Day. We’d get the day off work to nap and cuddle puppies all day long.   

What are your three favorite podcasts and/or books?

The two best books I’ve ever read are Evicted and The Uninhabitable Earth. My current favorite podcast is The Read.

What are you currently binge watching?

You can always find me binge watching reruns of The Office or Chopped. I also just watched all of the HBO Chernobyl series in a day!

What can you be found doing in your free time?

Reading, lifting weights, or cooking new vegan recipes. And of course, sleeping or cuddling my puppy.

What does your job look like day-to-day?

Day to day looks pretty different for me. I manage our marketing, communications, and event planning, so each day has something new and challenging. One day I can be working on planning for table settings at Voices of Freedom, and the next I could be found interviewing a staff member for an upcoming blog post.

What’s the most inspiring part of your job?

I think the most inspiring part of my job is being able to communicate the stories of survivors. All the pieces I work on at End Slavery Tennessee have some aspect of telling a story to them – whether that’s visually or verbally – and I think that’s a really inspiring thing to do.

Where did you go to college? What did you get your degree in?

I went to Illinois State University and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Public Relations.

What path led you to work at End Slavery Tennessee?

Before I even went to college, I knew I wanted to work in a nonprofit organization doing storytelling and event planning/fundraising. Several of my internships throughout college and my work post-graduation led me to Nashville, which ultimately led me to End Slavery Tennessee!
