I am the social media intern for EACVB who finds excitement in scrolling through Facebook and Twitter timelines, creating hashtags on Instagram and pinning everything from recipes to movie quotes on Pinterest. I Snapchat more than I text and I watch YouTube videos for fun. I value a gluten-free pizza and a big iced coffee. When I am not in the office I enjoy spending time with family and friends at venues around the Fox River Valley area, as well as, attempting to go on long runs throughout town. My current goal in life is to go on a road trip across the United States visiting random and unusual tourist attractions and I find conspiracy theories and urban legends fascinating.
