While working with Saxum, I have had the opportunity to work with more than 40 national and local clients including ProCure Proton Therapy Center, U.S. Cellular, Habitat for Humanity and The State Chamber of Oklahoma. Saxum has given me the opportunity to learn in a fast-paced environment where I have aided in press conference planning and production, created media materials and drafted multi-media messaging.

B.A. in Journalism and Broadcasting

I am currently a senior at Oklahoma State University majoring in Public Relations with a minor in Marketing. I will graduate in May of 2010.



My name is Jessica Young, I’m a senior at Oklahoma State University and will graduate in May with a degree in Public Relations and Marketing. I’m currently interning for Saxum Public Relations in OKC and lovin’ it! Deep down, I’m an Oklahoma girl and the older I get, the prouder I am of it. If I could do anything all day, every day it would be read. I’ll read inside with a cup of hot tea, in bed on a rainy day or outside on the beach. I want people to walk away from me thinking I’m fun, caring and reliable.
