The DC Semester gave me a great networking opportunity with like-minded people from around the country.
I grew up in Lawrenceville, GA and attended the University of Georgia, earning degrees in political science and international affairs. In Washington I interned in Chairman Reince Priebus’ office at the Republican National Committee. After graduation I accepted a position as a field representative for the Georgia Republican Party where I’ll be working with Republican grassroots efforts through November.
