I am a senior at Quinnipiac University obtaining a degree in public relations with a minor in marketing. Currently I am interning at Cashman + Katz Integrated Communications in Glastonbury, CT. Previously, I interned at Goodman Media International in New York City. With graduation around the corner, I have begun to look into entry level positions at PR firms in New York City, where I can utilize all my knowledge of PR that I have gained over the past four years.
