My name is Jessica Gaynor, I’m a senior at Oklahoma State University and will be graduating in May 2012 with a degree in Public Relations. I am hoping to pursue a career within the strategic communications field. My main career goal is to work in the sports industry, more specifically the NFL. I was born in Massachesetts and raised in Texas, so I'm a Texas girl at heart. My family and friends are very important to me and I stand behind whatever I believe.
