Skills

Skills

Graphic design

I have dabbled in graphic design in a few of my strategic communications classes at OSU. I am still learning but I know the basics of Adobe Photoshop and InDesign.

Social media

Having grown up in this generation, I've used social media as a communication form since middle school. Social media has changed and evolved a lot since then, but I have kept up with current social networks both in personal and professional aspects, including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

AP Style

Writing for my university's newspaper and writing a freelance column for a health care specialist organization has given me experience in AP style. My strategic communications classes at OSU have also stressed the use of AP style and class assignments have given me experience in it as well.

Writing

I've enjoyed writing since high school and have always been good at it. I enjoy writing almost anything from a news story or a news release to various papers for classes.
