Describe your current career and what you love most about it.

"I love being able to assist constituents in the 2nd Congressional District of Georgia. If constituents need assistance with a government agency, I am able help with their questions, point constituents in the right direction, or work with the agency in question to resolve the constituent's case. Some of the federal agencies that I love working with the most include the Veterans Administration, Social Security Administration, Internal Revenue Service, Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services, and the Small Business Administration."

How have your Middle Georgia State experiences benefited you in your career and personal life?

"My advisor was very supportive of my political endeavors and helped me find ways to maintain internships with two Congressmen, the Democratic National Committee, state representatives, and the Macon-Bibb Courthouse. Having had all of those experiences while an undergrad I was able to naturally transition and adapt into my current career with the upmost confidence."

What do you expect to be doing in five years?

"I'll continue to be well traveled, thriving in my career, and provoking change in my community."
