Before her graduation from Mount Gilead High School In the class of 2006 she was involved in Mock Trial; where she honed her debating skills, was a “Most Improved Scholar” Award winner, and was an aid for her various teachers. She also worked at the Cornerstone Café as a waitress where she was very well liked by her customers. Now, a freshman at Kent State University, majoring in Psychology, a very artistic person, she enjoyed playing the keyboard and writing poetry. Her family described her as “sweet, caring, beautiful, and stubborn”. She loved her dogs having 8 at home, but Dillon, a Japanese Chin, held a special place in her heart. Due to her petite stature she had various nicknames. Her Grandma Kathy called her a “little porcelain doll”, while her grandpa Harry called her “Itzy Bitzy” since the day she was born.
