Objective

To utilize my skills and experience to find a job in public relations that will further my interest and education in the career. 

Summary

I am a senior at the University of Oregon studying public relations. While growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, my interests developed in music, fashion and food.

In the spring of 2009, I studied abroad in London where my interests grew in travel. While studying abroad in London I also gained skills of confidence, independence, communication, planning, and time management.

My past jobs have also provided me with skills in customer service and communicating with consumer needs.

Above all, I hope to incorporate all of my interests into a career in public relations.  

Thank you for your time and consideration.
