Turner resides in Parlin and graduated from the Robert Busch School of Design Michael Graves College at Kean University in May 2023 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. While at the university, Turner was a dean’s list recipient from fall 2021 to spring 2023 and completed a design internship with the New York Jets during the spring semester of 2023. She also served as the creative director for The Kean Sports Summit, providing art direction and design for the brand identity and advertising of the first issue through multichannel marketing.
