Summary

The skills I have developed over the years at Fort Hays State University have progressed over time, and a collection of artifacts representing those skills is in this portfolio.  Growing up in a small town, I was unsure of what I wanted my career to be.  However that changed when I took an advanced speech class in high school.  My teacher taught me to believe in myself, and I began to enjoy giving speeches.  From there I majored in Communication with an emphasis in Public Relations.  I am a very outgoing person who enjoys meeting new people and traveling to see new places.  I would be willing to travel to places for my job; however I am not looking to relocate nor spend all of my time on the road.

          There have been many obstacles along my way that I have had to overcome in order to get where I am today.  I enjoy working in groups for accomplish tasks that take a long time, but I would rather work by myself at my own pace on other projects.
