Ashley Hatten


To obtain a position as a public relations professional, working with online and print media to help maintain favorable public image.


I am a marketing professional with skills in design and writing. I graduated in May 2011 with a degree in Mass Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations and a minor in Communication Studies. Currently I am employed at UnityWorks, a video advertising company based in Bloomington. Previously I held a marketing position at Lennar. And in college was employed by the Career Development Center as the Assistant Event Planner. In these positions I have learned to utilize the Adobe suites to create and publish posters, newspaper advertisements, hand outs, bulletin boards, and showcases. I also am skilled in writing press releases, blogs, articles and scripts. 

In my college years I was  the president of the Mankato chapter of PRSSA, Public Relations Society of America. In this position I learned how to manage an on-campus organization and run meetings of 20+ attendees. I have organized tours of major public relations companies and departments. 


I am often found writing both for my education and in my free time. Due to my excessive writing I often edit and critique others' papers and work. I enjoy reading and as of lately I have started to expand my interests and am learning to appreciate different genres.

Watching movies and playing sports such as soccer, tennis and  running are ways I enjoy winding down and are my way of 'stopping to smell the roses.'

I love to be creative! When I have down time I draw, both with old-fashioned paper and pencil as well as design on computer software, I can even be found coloring.

I enjoy networking on popular sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, and love learning more and expanding my horizons online.
