About Me

Hello there, my name is Blythe Westfall and I am a junior at Oklahoma State University studying Strategic Communications with a focus in Public Relations, as well as a minor in Spanish. I love people, serving, communication, non-profits, black coffee, black BIC pens and a good book. I want to pursue numerous career paths within Strategic Communications including, but not limited to: non-profit, overseas missions, graphic design and advertising for a church, writing and editing a novel and being a writer/journalist/photographer for a magazine such as The National Geographic or Vogue. I am extremely willing, energetic, passionate and ready to serve wherever my career path leads me, regardless of location, time and income. I know I love people and want to work alongside people, so wherever that leads me in the work force, so be it!



Denise Westfall

My mother has been my boss for the past three summers in Tulsa, Okla. as the head swim instructor at Oral Roberts University, as well as my head boss for the children's ministry I work for at my church in Tulsa, Okla. I have worked under her leadership in both of these positions (swim instructor and children bible teacher) for more than six years. She is a reliable reference for listing my skill set, work ethic and character.

Swim Instructor

Oral Roberts University Swim Lessons

I have more than five summers of swimming instructor experiences for children ranging from 2-years-old all the way to teenagers. I moderate, plan and instruct students for more than 8 hours a day during the summer months and work alongside more than ten instructors, and have learned to adapt, moderate and challenge my swimming students according to their skill level, physical capabilities, needs and fears. I grew in my leadership abilities and have become stronger in my work ethic.

Youth Intern

Kirk of The Hills Presbytarian Church

I was the 7th-12th grade youth intern at church in Tulsa, Okla. Planned all summer events for students, created graphics for weekly bulletins, wrote and published weekly emails sent to parents and students and took photographs and compiled into an online portfolio. In this internship, I learned to work social medias for communication with varied audiences (facebook, twitter, wordpress, online contact info., etc.) and as well learned to use the Adobe Creative Suites (photoshop, illustrator, indesign) and have knowledge of high-end cameras and other technological tools.
