Summary

I am a Client Services Assistant and member of the E-Communications team at Casey Communications.  I work with senior account staff and clients to conduct research, develop marketing communications plans, carry-out a wide variety of writing assignments and a broad range of project coordination efforts for multiple clients.

As a senior Public Relations major and Writing minor at Drury University in Springfield, Missouri, I developed an interest in event planning and social media marketing as well as writing. I feel my knack for paying close attention to detail and my love for public speaking are two key qualities that will help me excel in my career.
