Summary

Excited to begin a journey on a new career path, I feel confident that my coursework in advertising and public relations has prepared me with the professional communication skills needed to excel in the fields of public relations and marketing.  

My recent experiences as a student and Communications Intern for the Department of Tourism in Lebanon, Missouri, have ignited in me a passion to become involved in my community and has solidified my belief that when people come together, great things can happen.
