Summary

I am a recent graduate of Valdosta State University. I graduated in May with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Speech Communication. I was a Public Relations Intern for the Dunwoody Chamber of Commerce during the summer of 2010. I drafted press releases, wrote blogs and e-newsletters, restructured the websites, operated their social networking sites and assisted in planning and executing special events. I also helped brainstorm marketing and branding ideas between the staff and board members. I am avidly seeking a career in the Public Relations and/or Marketing industries. I am searching the job market to obtain a position with a company that will appreciate my skills, willingness to work with others and my eagerness to learn and grow within the organization. I hope to offer a company longevity.
