About Me

I am currently a full-time student at Ohio Northern University looking for a job in the Cincinnati area. I will graduate in May 2011 and will be willing to start working full-time in mid-June.

  • Desired position: I am very interested in organizing and planning events, social media, consumer relations and brand management.
  • Qualifications: I am efficient in Microsoft Office Programs. I love to stay busy and organized. I am a creative thinker and leader who prefers to work in a team setting.

I believe my experiences has a college student athlete challenged me to excel academically while effectively using my time and energy to achieve my personal goals. During my time as a Public Relations/Communications Intern at Greater Cincinnati Water Works the past two summers, I was able to improve my written and verbal communication skills. I worked on implementing social media as a way to advertise our events, thoughts and information to the public. As a member of the volleyball program at Ohio Northern, I gained confidence and the ability to work well under pressure. I know that a positive attitude is always a necessity no matter what I’m trying to accomplish.
