I am a Vashon Island native now living in Eugene, Oregon. I currently attend the University of Oregon completing a B.S. in Public Relations and Journalism, along with a minor in Business Administration.
I am a strategic communicator interested in business and media relations. I have experienced a variety of public relations mediums while being a student through coursework and internships. Right now, I serve as an Account Executive for Allen Hall Public Relations where I collaborate in the nationally accredited, award winning, student-run firm. Each week I attend firm meetings as well as client and team meetings. I am also a volunteer in the PRSSA peer mentorship program. And newly a proud member of PRSA (hello adulting).
I recently returned from studying abroad this past summer in Siena, Italy. Aside from learning how to navigate my way in a foreign country and speak Italian, I learned the skills to work with an international client, Villa Trasqua Winery. During my several months in Siena I studied Social Media Marketing, Cross- Cultural Communication and Wine Marketing and achieved a 4.0 gpa. I gained international presentation skills and served as the team leader on award winning team that was voted Best Marketing Plan.
Previously I worked as a publicity coordinator at Ballet Fantastique. I promoted productions through paperless posts and email blasts that were distributed to 4k participants internationally. I contributed in creating digital content for recruiting dancers internationally.
In 2014, I served as Panhellenic coordinator for Delta Delta Delta: an organization that is focused on philanthropic relations. In this executive position I influenced 185 collegiate women to become more involved in community service. I increased overall involvement by 23 percent compared to the previous academic school year.
My writing is published weekly on Her Campus Oregon, the number one global community for college women. I recently won "most read article."
My photography work has also been published on KVAL news. I was published on the AHPR blog.
