I believe one of the most terrifying things a person can do is something new.

It’s even more terrifying if it’s something you’re passionate about, and I’ve been passionate about people my entire life.

Journalism is all about the people.

Clarksville is a special city. We are a true melting pot of college and military families, small business owners and everything in between. Once you're here, you'll never forget it.

I grew up in the Smyrna area but moved to Clarksville in late 2017 to attend Austin Peay State University. During my time at Austin Peay, I studied broadcast and journalism, which led me to run the newscast there for a couple years.

I was also a part of the Greek life community during my entire time there, and I briefly worked in the Student Affairs department as part of the GovsCare initiative.

There were burgers at Johnny's.

And late nights filled with studying.

But, I got a chance to really see Clarksville. As the new public safety reporter at The Leaf-Chronicle, I hope to do the community proud, and I can’t wait to tell your stories.
