Hello and welcome to my portfolio, my name is Kathleen LeBlanc! I am a proud Longwood University senior majoring in Communications with a concentration in Organizational Communication and Public Relations. I am preparing to graduate with my bachelors degree this May of 2012 and am excited to start a new chapter in my life working in the field of communication. I am a motivated individual with an eye for perfection and strong organization practices which keep me a step ahead. I work well in groups, am very efficient in my own individual work, and am capable of successfully completing multiple projects at the same time. I have excellent writing skills and am able to speak confidently in front of an audience. All of these skills that I have make me a great candidate for a position in event planning or marketing. This portfolio contains my resume and samples of work I have completed in my Communication classes that I believe represent my best work. Thank you for taking an interest in me and I hope you enjoy my portfolio!
