Eastern Michigan University

I graduated Magna Cum Laude and received my bachelor's degree in journalism in April 2012. I maintained Dean's List status every semester at EMU and was a Regents scholar.

I was a member of a national women's fraternity, Alpha Xi Delta, where I served as the vice president (2011-2012), public relations chair (2010-2011) and secretary (2009-2010). 

Skills

Public relations
After completing a public relations course, I became the vice president of public relations for my sorority and created and sent out multiple press and radio releases. I also developed our chapter's semi-annual alumni newsletter.
Technical writing
I took a technical writing course and have continued to use my skills in my sorority where I've had to compile and send out many professional documents.
Copy editing
As a sophomore, I took a copy editing class and have continued to employ and improve my skills through my own work at iSPY Magazine.

Summary

I am a graduate of Eastern Michigan University where I received a bachelor's degree in journalism and English language.

Currently, I work for Pakmode Media + Marketing as a staff writer for one of our publications, iSPY Magazine. Our magazine is an arts and entertainment publication covering events in Washtenaw County with a focus on the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti area. We also cover events for the two major universities in the area--Eastern Michigan University and the University of Michigan. My focus is on covering events at EMU, specializing in sports, features, and spotlights on students and alumni.

I served as the vice president of my sorority, Alpha Xi Delta, where I was iin charge of handling my chapter's risk management and social policies as well as being a right-hand to our president.

I was on the dean's list for eight consecutive semesters as well as being a Regents Scholar. In Spring 2010, I was awarded with the Alpha Xi Delta new member scholarship.

Following my April 2012 graduation, I hope to find a job in sports media for a college or university.
