I love people. That is my thing. Whether it's helping an employer find the right candidate to fill a position or volunteering with the American Cancer Society to work toward a cancer-free world, I enjoy working with others to fulfill a goal for success.

Personal Goal: to continue to be a level-headed, competent and determined event coordinator with an eye for details and a persistence of certainty that there's always a way to improve, learn and make someone's experience more enjoyable.


Aug 2005 - May 2009



Throughout my years as a student, I learned how to be a Graphic Designer and great communicator through Public Relations, Broadcast and Marketing courses, work with others in stressful environments while having fun, take on leadership roles in various organizations (ex. Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity), enjoy my time as a student, a friend AND a Cowboy, and really just get to know myself and improvise.

Favorite memory - taking a picture with my sister in the middle of a paper-mache O. We're both alums now, and enjoyed our years as OSU students. But, of course, it's always great to be a student, but it's even greater to be an alum - right? GO POKES!
