Summary

I am a public relations graduate from The University of Texas at San Antonio. While attending UTSA, I also received a minor in general business administration. My experience is primarily with public relations and marketing, but I have worked with media relations and advertising as well.Through my experience, I have found that one must always use creativity in problem-solving, relationship management, and of course, idea generation. I use these tools to inspire others with innovative ideas, high energy, and a positive attitude.
