I am Alison Klapper, a senior at the University of Oregon. I will graduate with a degree in public relations and a French minor. I gained invaluable classroom and internship experience through the University of Oregon. I developed creative public relations plans including the use of various public relations tactics using social and traditional media. I created a media kit, wrote press releases, and created presentations. I've managed the social media accounts for the the City of Eugene Outdoor Program. Most recently, I've worked on press releases and blogging for the American Red Cross. I want to continue working with organizations who share my passion in improving the community wellness including organizations that promote healthy, balanced lifestyles and sustainable living.
