My name is Sarah Banschenbach and I am a Junior at Longwood University majoring in Communication Studies with a minor in Business Administration.  While working through my Communications requirements I have explored event planning, the communication auditing process, improved my conflict resolution skills, and perfected my interpersonal communication skills.  My focus has been in Organizational and Strategic Communication and I hope to obtain an Internship working with a team of professionals who would most benefit from the skills listed above.
