I’m Tyler Hyde, the voice behind An Aspiring Heroine. By day, I create and manage social media for an awesome educational organization that I probably tweet about too much to be discreet.

I hail from a tiny town in Georgia, and after receiving my undergrad at Washington and Lee University in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, I moved to Cincinnati with Spencer and Zoey (the aforementioned husband and cat, respectively). I started this blog in 2014 as a way to keep friends and family up-to-date on our lives, and it has since been rebranded once, basically abandoned twice, and used as a creative outlet more times than I can count.
Three things you should know about me:
