She went on to Millsaps College where she graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Biology. She was active in Chi Omega and volunteered her summers as a lifeguard at Camp Bratton Green. During her junior year of college she applied for and was awarded the Mississippi Rural Physicians Scholarship, a scholarship to promote return to practice in rural Mississippi.
