Plate and Passport


My partner and I are big foodies who love to travel. "Adventure is out there" is the motto that we live by, never passing up a chance to try something--or some place--new. We created Plate and Passport as a way to share our love of all things food and travel related with the world. We're new at this and learning a lot, but so far we have loved it and are only looking ahead.

Senior Capstone Project

Presenting my research at the Id-Net 2015 Visual Literacies Conference in Lisbon, Portugal


The espresso there was the best I've ever had. I haven't been able to find anything like it in the states.


I loved how walkable the city was. We spent quite a bit of time exploring during our free time.

Exploring the hotel that was hosting the conference. The hotel was Hotel Real Palacio; it was stunning.


This was my first research conference. I was excited to be able to collaborate with the others presenting.

Agnes Scott College

Teaching Assistant

My final semester at Agnes I was fortunate enough to secure a TA position with a professor who was advising me on my capstone research project. I was required to take the course, but because of my advanced studies, she offered me the TA position so that I would have the experience. I guided students through the coursework in developing their own research questions.



Noodle was my first restaurant job and I loved every second of it. It was a small, local joint within walking distance of Agnes so it fit perfectly within my hectic schedule. I was hired as a hostess, but, ambitious as I am, it wasn't long before I was a shift manager on rotation. Experimenting with cocktails was my one of my favorite things to do during my time at there.

Eyedrum Atlanta

Operations Intern

As an operations intern with Eyedrum Atlanta, I had multiple responsibilities. I helped with day-to-day operations, logistical coordination of gallery and private events, coordinated with local musicians and artist to ensure proper installation of pieces and concert set-up, and other administrative duties as assigned by the gallery manager.

The Georgian Terrace Hotel

Guest Services Agent

The GT is a historical landmark in Atlanta. The "Gone With The Wind" premier was hosted there and it sits right across the street from the historic Fox Theatre. Working here gave me full access to what was going on the city. I dealt with clientele ranging from sports fans in town for the game to stage and screen actors. I delivered exceptional service no matter the client.

Victory World Church

Administrative Assistant/Volunteer Manager

My time at Victory was spent perfecting the art of multi-tasking. I was a peer coach, volunteer manager, curriculum developer, event coordinator, social media guru, contributing blogger, travel coordinator, overseas team leader, and paper pusher. I learned a lot during my time there and initiated several projects including the redevelopment of how volunteers are trained.
