in one short statement
quirky with a big heart
Hi, It's nice to e-meet you!
I am a Vashon Island native now living in Seattle, Washington. In June 2017 I graduated from the University of Oregon with a B.S. in both Public Relations and Journalism, along with a minor in Business Administration.
I am a strategic communicator interested in media relations. I have experienced a variety of public relations mediums and feel compelled to explore a career in communications marketing. My objective is to utilize my natural ability to connect to work with and for people I admire.
Most recently I had the privilege to work as the Lead Intern at Edelman. While in this role, I learned the fundamentals of media relations and fine-tuned my attention to detail while exercising my ability to manage multiple account work simultaneously. I maintained client-facing documents for international clients including, Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, Kellogg's, Charles Smith Wines and Viking Cruises.
Last year, I served as an Account Executive for Allen Hall Public Relations, a nationally accredited, award-winning, student-run firm. My team implemented a strategic communication plan for the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art that increased student membership by 42 percent. I also volunteered in the PRSSA peer mentorship program. And since moving back to Seattle I became a member of PRSA (hello adulting).
In the summer of 2016 I had the honor of studying abroad in Siena, Italy and interned with an internationally client, Villa Trasqua winery. During my three months in Siena, I studied Social Media Marketing, Cross-Cultural Communication and Wine Marketing and achieved a 4.0 GPA. I worked on an international team that was voted "Best Marketing Plan" out of 15 competing teams.
Previously, I worked as a Publicity Coordinator at Ballet Fantastique where I promoted productions through paperless posts and email blasts that were distributed to over 4,000 participants internationally. I also contributed in creating digital content for recruiting dancers and assisted in drafting press releases for local events. In 2014, I served on Panhellenic Greek Executive Council for Delta Delta Delta: an organization that is focused on philanthropic relations. In this executive position, I influenced over 2,000 collegiate women to become more involved in community service.
In 2017, I served as a contributing writer for Her Campus Oregon, the number one global community for college women. One of my articles was voted "Most Read Article" for January 2017 publication. I also contributed to writing pieces for aspiring PR pros on the AHPR blog. And lastly, one of my side hustles is photography; in college I shot images for Oregon News Lab where my photography was published on KVAL news.
