Summary

I am a recent public relations graduate from Oklahoma State University. I am hard-working, detail-oriented, organized, honest and I love to learn. I am always open to new ideas and testing my abilities. I am slowly embracing the fact my college days are over, but I am looking forward to implementing my skills as a young professional. I am currently seeking an entry-level position in the public relations and communications field.
