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.
