Hello there and welcome to my portfolio! My name is Brittany Childress and I am currently looking for a public relations or marketing internship, specifically within the sports industry. I recently graduated from Columbia College with an Associates of Arts degree in Behavioral and Social Studies and an Associates of Science degree in Business Administration, and currently studying for my Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from California State University, Stanislaus. Please explore my portfolio for more information.


First and foremost, I am interested in every aspect of the sports industry. I would love to be able to make a career out of watching sports, writing about sports or working with the athletes. I have a passion for journalism, as well. As one can see by my resume, I have interned as well as worked for two different magazines. I have been inducted into the Quill and Scroll society when I was editor of my high school newspaper, The Lily Pad. I also competed in a summer-long business camp put on by State Farm in Murfreesboro, Tennessee as the Chief Executive Officer and Marketing Director of my group's business and led my team to victory. I really do enjoy a wide-range of activities and like to challenge myself on a daily basis!
