Summary

I am a senior at Purdue University studying Public Relations and Advertising, with a minor in Organizational Leadership Supervision. I am preparing to graduate in May and am very excited to take all I have learned from the past 4 years and put it towards a career. It’s so important to know exactly who you are in this world, and to be confident in that person. I have spent the last four years of my life here at Purdue growing into the young professional I am proud of today.  I am a positive, creative, and driven individual.  I often take on new and challenging projects because I am always thinking about the next step and improving myself.  I enjoy working in a fast- paced environment where I can think for myself and implement my own strategies and tactics to get the job done. Although I enjoy solving problems on my own, I am also very comfortable working with others under guidelines.  A very optimistic outlook on life is what keeps me going and excited about my future.
