Currently I am an account executive for Tehama Group Communications, a student-managed public relations agency at Chico State. I just finished a semester internship at Chabin Concepts. There, I got to become familiar with economic development and writing for that specific target audience. This summer, I hope to get an internship at Fleishman-Hillard. In the fall of 2009, I will be studying abroad in Alicante, Spain where I hope to become fluent in the Spanish language. Ultimately, I would like to work in sports, hospitality or tourism PR. I plan on moving to San Francisco in January 2010 to pursue these goals.
