My name is Anna Laura Killian and yes, I go by both my first and middle names. I was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama with my parents and younger brother. I loved everything about growing up in Tuscaloosa, but I knew I wanted to experience college in a new setting.
As a second generation Auburn student with a desire to go away for school, I decided that Auburn was the perfect place for me. In my time at Auburn I have grown both as a student and professional. The opportunities and experiences I have been exposed to at Auburn have shaped who I am as a person and will carry me throughout my life.
Growing up participating in sports and being in an area that greatly appreciates them, I have always been intrigued by the idea of working professionally in the sports industry. With a dad that was a collegiate athlete, sports became special to me at a young age. They were something I could learn about from him and the memories from that I will always treasure. There is a camaraderie in sports that is unmatched is the reason why I have such a strong desire to work in the industry.
Along with my passion for sports, I also love meeting new people and learning their story. Public relations is the perfect major for me to pursue my passion of sports as well as serving other people on a personal level.
In May of 2018 I will graduate from Auburn with a bachelor’s degree in public relations with a concentration in marketing and management. As of now, my plans after graduation consist of me attending graduate school for sports management.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, Pure Barre, watching college football, walking my dog or attempting to run.
