I was born and raised here in Tyler, I've never called another place home. I graduated from East Texas Christian Academy in 2010, and just finished getting my associates degree from TJC. I was hired as a temporary, part-time receptionist over a year ago, and now I'm the receptionist and digital program assistant here at Townsquare Media. I am also the youngest person on staff here. I grew up listening to 101.5 KNUE and all of these stations. It's funny to now be working with the people I have grown up listening to. This job has been such a blessing and learning experience. It is definitely one of the best things that has happened to me. Being in an environment based on music is the best environment there is."After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music"-Aldous Huxley
