Where do you Relay and Why?
I've been Relaying for as long as I can remember! Relay is more than a fundraiser or event to me. It's family. I love how a community can come together to fight against one cause. Currently, I Relay at the University of South Carolina, but my hometown Relay is Gwinnett County, Georgia. I have and will always Relay for Sophia, my grandparents and everyone that cancer has touched.
What is your favorite Relay memory?
In 2012, I led the Luminaria lap at the Relay For Life of Gwinnett County, one of the largest community events. I held a flashlight for the bagpipers who were playing Amazing Grace as we walked around the track for the first lap. Being a part of such a special moment will always be one of my favorite Relay memories!

What is your favorite memory from the NCLT?
Living in a Dallas hotel for an entire week with my NCLT family has to be one of my favorite memories! We worked so hard to help set-up, organize and plan #RelayCon! I would do it all over again if I could. It was amazing to see all of the volunteers from all across the country come together!
