Something I have had nearly all my life is a passion for people. In my education and work experience, I have learned how to translate that passion into a skill set that I can use to benefit my employer and community. 

I am experienced in writing, graphic design, photography and social media. Through my internships, classroom and work experience, I have gained the skills it takes to be successful. I look forward to using those skills to benefit my post-graduation employer.
