Julie Ratliff

Summary

    Navigating the complex world of advertising, marketing and public relations is my passion; working directly with clients to achieve their goals in my obsession. Strategic communications is my game and Julie Ratliff is my name.

    I am a current Oklahoma State student with a passion for learning. I have two degrees from Tulsa Community College, one in liberal arts and the other in interpreter education (sign language). I have always enjoyed working with other people to solve problems, though I value independent thinking. I also enjoy traveling. It opens the mind to new and exciting ideas that can be employed in a variety of settings. Shying away from a challenge is not my style. Determination, ability, teamwork and success compel me to accomplish the tasks I create as well as the ones given to me. I am a hard-worker with a slight addiction to perfection. My employer and their clients deserve the best. Anything less is intolerable.

    Please read and look through my work samples. Do not hesitate to ask me any questions. Thank you and please enjoy.
