In August 2010 I will graduate from the University of Oregon's School of Journalism and Communication with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism: Public Relations. I am looking for internships or entry-level positions in public relations, event planning and communication. I have special interests in social media and networking.

Annual Giving Program
At the Annual Giving Program, we call alumni and parents of University of Oregon students and raise funds for academics. While working at the call center, I would have 5-15 minute conversations with the prospects informing them of the improvements on campus. I would also inquire about the students experience. I would then ask if they could make a financial contribution to the University of Oregon to be used strictly for academics.

For two summers and parts of winter break, I was a lifeguard and water safety instructor. Duties included surveying large groups of active swimmers, teaching children ages 3-7 how to swim and also running the cash register.
