Background

My name is Christy Ulmet. I recently completed a bachelor of science degree in multimedia journalism at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, Tenn. My interest in journalism began my freshman year when I was asked to be on the newspaper staff. This experience gave me the desire to tell peoples’ stories both creatively and truthfully.
