Hello! My name is Emily Coit and I am a senior at the University of Oregon, graduating with a degree in public relations in June, 2010. I am currently an Account Executive at Allen Hall Public Relations, the University of Oregon's student-run, full-service public relations firm. I am also a media intern at MyEugene, a local, online news source.  I previously interned in the public relations department of the Oregon Humane Society, it was during this internship when I discovered my love for the non-profit sector of public relations.  I am interested in fundraising, publicity and event planning for a non-profit organization.  I am a skilled public relations writer and a budding social media strategist. After graduation I plan to move to Telluride, CO where I will be working with an event planning company.
