Objective

To obtain an entry level public relations position within the Springfield area using my strong writing, organizational, and design abilities.

Summary

Writing. Planning. Social Media. Design. I love them all. That is why I have decided to spend the rest of my life working in public relations. I couldn't imagine doing anything else that I love more. 

As a senior graduating in December, I'm looking for an entry-level public relations job in the Springfield, Missouri area. My work and educational experiences have prepared me for a full-time position in the public relations field. The work I have produced from these experiences reflects how much I have learned and is displayed in my portfolio.

As I search for a job, I am open to different types of public relations positions. However, I would love to find a job that relates to my interests in the education, medical, and recreation fields.
