Hi, I'm happy you're here. It's nice to meet you...
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 will graduate in June 2017.
I am a strategic communicator interested in business and media relations. I have experienced a variety of public relations mediums as a student through coursework and internships and am driven and curious to explore a career in communication after college. I want to utilize my natural ability to connect to work with and for people I admire.
Right now, I serve as an Account Executive for Allen Hall Public Relations, a nationally accredited, award-winning, student-run firm. Each week I attend firm meetings as well as client and team meetings. We recenlty implemented a strategic communication plan for the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art that increased student membership by 42 percent, according to our Qualtrics survey. 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 speaking minimal 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, achieving a 4.0 GPA. I was assigned team lead of a four-person team that presented internationally and 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 four thousand participants internationally. I also contributed in creating digital content for recruiting dancers internationally and wrote press releases for 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.
One of my passions is writing. My articles are published on Her Campus Oregon, the number one global community for college women. I was voted "Most Read Article" for January 2017 publication. I also have written for AHPR blog. Another one of my interests is photography. I am involved in Oregon News Lab where my photography is published on KVAL news.
