Welcome!

Hi! Welcome to my page and thank you for viewing my online resume and portfolio!

As a recent graduate from Georgia Southern University, I felt that I needed to do something extra to boost my appeal to potential employers, especially in today's economy. Throughout this page, you will find sample pieces I have completed, descriptions of my skills that will propel me in any career, as well as my past work experience and campus involvement.

My degree is in Public Relations, yet I have a large amount of marketing experience as well. I have worked as the Marketing Assistant at the Statesboro- Bulloch County Parks & Recreation Department for 2 years and also have taken many marketing courses (Management Mktg., Services Mktg., Professional Selling, Advertising, etc.).  Because of this, I understand the overlap of these two skills in the workplace. I also realize the importance of customer service in any industry and would love to work for a company who shares this focus.

I recently completed my summer internship and employment (May 2012- August 2012) at The Jacksonville Landing and am looking for a full-time job in public relations, marketing, events, communications, & similar fields.Even though I am a recent college graduate, I feel I have gained ample experience which makes me a great addition to any company.

Please feel free to email me about any of my information on this website.

Again, thank you for viewing my online resume and have a fantastic day!
