My name is Megan Elliott and I graduate from The Florida State University in August 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in English, concentrating in Editing, Writing, and Media, as well as a Bachelor's Degree in International Affairs. I currently live in Tallahassee, Florida. 

While studying at Florida State, I am the Director of Public Relations and Advertising for the online magazine, Her Campus (FSU chapter). I am also a contributing writer ( I am also a writer for the national online magazine, JAYE Magazine ( Topics I enjoy writing about and working with include fashion, beauty, communication technology, food and wine, entertainment, music, sports, and travel. 

I love being creative in any way that I can, whether it be writing, designing, cooking, or communicating verbally as well as in unconventional ways. I enjoy expressing my creativity visually by creating advertisements, designing campaigns, and branding upcoming companies or events.

I also enjoy sales and communicating with others in any way possible. I have recently been introduced to sales through my summer internship with The Campus Special. I have gained experience through selling advertising spots to business owners and writing up reports. I have an enthusiastic energy that is hard to find and I love working with others as well as independently.

I am always looking for new projects to take on. So whether you need a flyer made, a brochure written and designed, or a website created, I am more than happy to help. I am open to anything and am willing to take projects head on.

I have worked with and excelled in many programs including all Microsoft Office Programs, Adobe Photoshop and InDesign, Glogster, Prezi, Vuvox, Wix, Windows Movie Maker, and many more. I also have many years of blog experience. I possess the quick learning skills it takes to keep up in today's digital age, especially in the fields of Media and Communications.
