Greetings! My name is Rebecca but anyone close to me calls me Bex. A true southern core to my core, I was born in Tampa, Florida, raised in Houston, Texas, and attended college in Auburn, Alabama. Naturally, some of my favorite things are sweet tea, college football and warm days at the beach.

I traveled the the 681 miles from Houston to Auburn in the fall of 2014 as a transfer student. Ever gone into a room not knowing a single soul? Well, try an entire state. Ironically, the idea of moving somewhere on my own and starting fresh was exhilarating. It did not take long to find my place and begin to feel at home again. I have worked alongside professors who I look towards for mentorship and established friendships with peers I more commonly refer to as my second family.
