My name is Amber Morley and I recently graduated with a degree in public relations from Chico State with a minor in sociology. I am interested in pursuing a career in public relations because I love that no day is the same as the last and I love being able to use my creativity to help overcome challenges, whatever they may be, on a daily basis.

My courses at Chico State have given me the skills to work with website design, desktop publishing, write press releases, build media lists and create strategies and tactics for public relations plans.

I look forward to new opportunities that will continue to teach me and let me develop my skills in public relations.
