About me

Welcome to my blog!


My blog will give you a taste of who I was, who I am and who I want to be — it’s nice to meet you.

I was born a fourth generation Floridian in the town of Eustis to Rusty and Victoria Rivers. Later my family moved to Newnan, Georgia, where my brother, Jordan, and I fell for the charm of the South.

I enrolled at Auburn University fall 2010. After my first year of school, I took off one year to establish Alabama residency and returned fall 2012 as an in-state student.

In college, I worked as an associate trainer at Panera Bread during my year off and continued to hold that position for three and a half years. I worked for one year as an intern and writer for Auburn University’s Office of Communication and Marketing, and also served the university as a Camp War Eagle counselor in Auburn’s orientation experience. My collegiate involvement included: a social sorority, holding the positions of national philanthropy chairman and collegiate/alumnae relations chairman; Active Minds club, an organization dedicated to the promotion of positive mental health; Public Relations Student Society of America; Miss Auburn top 20 candidate; and Panhellenic recruitment leader.

I graduated from Auburn University May 2015 with a degree in public relations and a minor in leadership studies. I was hired at Faces in August 2015 as the company’s first marketing specialist, where I am responsible for activities designed to grow the company’s share of the visual communications market and to promote the Faces brand across print and electronic mediums.

While at Faces, I’ve enjoyed expanding the company’s marketing to incorporate a more personal brand. My experiences in a regional and international Elite, or emerging leadership, program within the industry has made me a more focused industry professional and I’ve developed lasting relationships and a love for the industry as a whole.

My personal interests include painting, time outdoors and any excuse to watch a movie. I especially love spending time with my dog, friends and family.

I strive to be an optimist and to find beauty in the little things. I believe that community is essential and above all else, love and hope bring the promise of better days ahead.

My personal motto is, “Move for things that matter.”

This started as a collection of writing samples for my Style & Design class at Auburn University, where I have created a digital resume and portfolio; you can find it at toririvers.com.
