I am currently a Senior, studying Public Relations, at Western Carolina University.
In the past, I was Special Events Coordinator for the WCU chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) – organizing and negotiating logistics for a “Headshot Day,” offering affordable, professional headshots for students. Proceeds from this event went to benefit the WCU chapter of PRSSA.
In addition, my Minor is in Environmental Health (Public Health). I am a member of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE). I look forward to combining my Public Relations and Public Health skills once I continue working after graduation.
I have thoroughly enjoyed making connections in Sylva/Cullowhee, NC through my positions with the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce and the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching. Both organizations provided me with valuable opportunities to practice my written, verbal, and photographic communication skills.
Before beginning my undergraduate degree in PR, my professional experience consisted of 5-Star, 5-Diamond hospitality service.
My graduation date is scheduled for early May 2017.
