I wish to enter the public affairs/public relations field to help clear the muddied waters of the rhetoric of politics. I plan to attend Vanderbilt College of Law upon graduating from Ohio Northern University. I believe the key to success in life is preparation, and the lock on the door is opportunity.

Bachelor of Arts
I began at ONU as a Music Education Major. I switched at the end of my sophomore year to Public Relations because I wanted to be able to use my writing skills and my passion for politics, in my profession. I like that PR is about honest communication and building relationships.

ONU Counseling Center
Answered phones and took messages for Counselors
Organized Counselor schedules
One of the most important things about this job was that I had to be completely confidential about who I saw come in and out of the counseling center. Since I was a student, I would sometimes have friends come in for whatever reasons, and I had to make them feel comfortable about my being there and about my knowing that they were there. Also, I had access to confidential files pertaining to student's mental health and I had to be trustworthy.

Infiniti of Bedford
Detailed new and used cars Delivered new cars to owners Transported cars between dealerships in and out of state
One of the things I enjoyed the most about working for Infiniti was their willingness to work with me. I had never driven a manual shift car before, and they took the time to give me driving lessons. Also, my manager, Dave Fratantonio, didn't mind that I had never detailed a car before, once he saw my work ethic and fast learning ability.
