Rebecca left Michigan after college and came to Atlanta seeking a brighter future—and warmer climate! She fell in love with the south, writing for metro Atlanta newspapers before switching to public relations. She’s been a public relations coordinator/writer for Georgia State University for eight years. A mom of four daughters who have made their way in the world after college, she lives with her husband in Madison, Ga., spending the weekends restoring their antebellum home. This is her first TEDx experience, and she’s excited about this energetic and inspirational team.
