Hello, my name is Allison Leisner. I would like to thank you for looking at my online portfolio! I am currently a Senior at Longwood University, graduating this May. I am studying Communication studies, with a concentration in organizational communication. At Longwood University I have been able to work with other organizations to help better their brand and image to the community, and also have public relations and event planning experience with organizations around the community. I feel as though I have strong written and communication skills, as well as the ability to work effectively in a team atmosphere. I am seeking a position in the field of public relations that will utilize my knowledge of the industry to help create the best "brand" and image for companies and organizations.
I hope to get a job in the field of public relations that will allow me to show off my skill sets that I have acquired during my time as an undergraduate.
