Summary

I am a recent graduate from Chico State where I majored in Journalism with an option in Public Relations. My most recent experience as the Public Relations Intern for the Chico State Wellness Center sparked a strong desire to fully immerse myself in all things public relations. My experience there taught me how to utilize social network platforms like Facebook and Twitter to better reach our targeted audience. I am passionate about social media and am fascinated by the integral part it plays in business, entertainment and online community building. I have developed a keen sense for writing and editing from my time spent as a writer for the entertainment section for the award-winning campus newspaper The Orion. This also nurtured a strong passion for feature writing, interviewing and researching. Furthermore, my contributing work for VacayVitamins.com, an online electronic music blog has taught me the importance of online communities and building my portfolio beyond my work at The Orion and the Chico State Wellness Center. I am ready to conquer the world of public relations, whether it be in the field of technology or entertainment, I aspire to be a "jack of all trades" and gain as much experience as I can.
