She stands by the firm belief that effective communication is the cornerstone of success for any organization and ensures the work she creates meets that criteria. Annie is driven by her commitment to creating messages that are creative, ethical and effective across the board. Her passion and long-held belief in the value of arts education has guided her career aspirations to conduct public relations work within the entertainment industry post-graduation.
Annie’s performance career spanned four years at Flower Mound High School in the color guard as a part of the competition band and junior varsity and varsity winter guards. She served a squad leader her senior year and was the recipient of the North Texas Colorguard Association Scholarship in 2017. She later served as a color guard technician at Argyle High School during their summer band camp before beginning her studies at UA.
Her passion for effective communication and social media content creation stemmed from her love of the marching arts and her start as a writer for her high school newspaper. She seized the opportunity to generate digital content for her school newspaper as well as for the color guard, running both of their social media accounts throughout her senior year. In college, she was on the news staff at The Crimson White for her freshman year and covered a variety of events and breaking news stories. Annie currently creates various forms of content as a copywriter for Capstone Agency, a student-run communications firm at UA. She also works at Alice Magazine, where she serves as the lifestyle editor as well as in a copywriting position in the digital department.
When she is not writing or trying to catch up on sleep, Annie can be found creating self-indulgent playlists on Spotify, marathoning TV shows she’s behind on or waiting for Alabama football season. She is elated to work for The Cavaliers as the Social Media Intern and share the unique stories of its members.
