During my education in new media communications came an interest and involvement in many PR related projects. With my love for writing, passion for sharing stories, and enjoyment from connecting and engaging people, I discovered a love for public relations. My experience in marketing, advertising, writing, leadership roles, media, event planning, and social media have all assisted in helping me learn the skills necessary to become successful in the world of public relations.
