GET TO KNOW ME

Hi, I'm Kaelin!

I was born and raised in Alexandria, Virginia, a historic city that is just a boat ride from Washington, D.C. Growing up on the Potomac River, spending summers on Lake Monticello and vacationing in the Bahamas, sparked my love for the outdoors. I love adventuring outside with friends and family. My family means the world to me. I wouldn't be who I am today without them. My parents taught me to always be kind, work hard and follow my dreams.

I followed my dreams, and my older sister, to Auburn University. Deciding to come to Auburn was one of the best decisions I have made. Though it is hundreds of miles away from Virginia, Auburn immediately felt like home. Auburn has provided me with a strong education, valuable skills and life-long memories that I will cherish forever.

I am hardworking, creative and driven. I am ready to use the knowledge and skills that I have learned throughout college to face new challenges and opportunities.
