She was born on December 6, 1989 in Georgia.  Her father was in the military so she moved multiple times when she was younger.  Following her father's footsteps, she joined the United States Army when she was 17-years-old.

She actually comes from a family full of military members.  Her mother, sister and brother are all in the Army.  She attended Virginia State University and graduated in 2011 with a degree in business management.  In 2011 she was also crowned Miss Virginia International:
