She served as a counselor for the 2014 Girls in Sports Day Camp and 2014 Move Mississippi. She’s been a Lafayette County Foster Family sponsor the last two years. A three-time SEC Academic Honor Roll member and a 2013 USTFCCCA All-Academic, she was named to the 2013-14 Who’s Who Among Students In American Universities and Colleges. She has also served as a student assistant in the Ole Miss Athletics Media Relations department.
