Graphic Design (Intern)

Ladybugs and Lizards Children's Boutique

I worked as an all-inclusive Graphic Design intern with Ladybugs and Lizards. As a growing small business with a successful online shopping presence, I worked with the owner and in-house advertising manager to create graphics for newspaper ads, magazine ads, web ads, fliers, promotional materials and posters for the store. I learned about the special needs of the store and tried to apply what I have learned in the classroom to the real-life situations the store faced in terms of marketing and advertising. My internship program with the store has ended, but I continue to work as Ladybugs and Lizards hired Graphic Designer.

At Stein Mart I worked as a cashier and was quickly promoted to Customer Service Lead. With this position, I helped resolve customer conflicts with cashiers as well as worked to sell promotions to customers such as Stein Mart credit cards and magazine subscriptions. I developed selling plans and strategies to convince the most people to sign up for the store's extra programs and created promotional material to advertise them.

I graduated high school the summer after my Junior year. As a 17 year old young woman, I knew I wasn't ready for a big university yet. I attended Austin Community College as a stepping stone to a university and it led me to great opportunities at Oklahoma State University.

I am a creative, involved and dedicated student looking to develop my skills, learn about my field and showcase my talents in Advertising.


I am a Strategic Communications student graduating May 2012 and looking for a job in Account Service. This year I was on the AAF NSAC Team as the Promotions Director and a presenter for the competition. As a team we developed an entire campaign for Nissan and as an individual I learned about group dynamics, communication between departments (especially Creative), and how to interact with many different personalities. I have also spent time working as an Account Executive at the Daily O'Collegian where I juggled more than 20 clients' special needs and wants for advertising. At the O'Colly, I acted as an account services representative as well as developed creative for clients that do not have designers already in place. I am also involved in OSU's AAF affiliated Ad Club. As the 2010-2011 Treasurer, I worked hard behind the scenes to keep the Club's finance organized and responsible. This year (2011-2012) I am the Programs Chairman, bearing the responsibility of meeting with professionals and lining up speakers and planning events for the club. With over 100 members, the Ad Club has been voted #1 club on campus for four consecutive years. I am also an Ambassador for the School of Media and Strategic Communications. As such, I direct tours and recruit incoming freshmen to the School and tell them about the opportunities it offers. Being a part of all of these programs as well as collegiate honors societies such as Phi Theta Kappa, Sigma Alpha Lambda, and the National Society for Collegiate Scholars, I have made my OSU experience as full as possible, thereby strengthening my passion for my field and my drive to find success in it.
