I am a 22-year-old senior at Chico State majoring in journalism with an option in public relations and a minor in Spanish. I grew up in sunny Southern California and can't wait to see where life takes me once I graduate in December 2011.
Over the past year, I have been worked for RMD Group, an event marketing company that promotes corporate brands such as Ford, K-Swiss, and Page One. This has resulted in strong client relationships and an expanded Northern California team. I also worked as the public relations and marketing intern at Restored Clothing Company, creating strategies to increase awareness among the local community. In this position, I have created a strong online presence in social networking as well as a weekly street team newsletter to improve communication between the company and its supporters.
Working as an Account Executive for Tehama Group Communications, an on-campus student-run public relations agency for Chico State, has allowed me to discover my passion for working with the media and event planning. Working with a variety of clients such as Caminar, a non profit organization, COMM, the College of Communications' newsletter, and Frugal House, a fundraiser for the North State symphony, has allowed me the chance to improve my writing, work in a leadership role, and organize media coverage. I love the high-speed environment of public relations and working out of the office on the go.
These opportunities have allowed me to experience both agency and in-house settings and the ability to work in diverse environments. In collaborating my efforts, I feel that I could increase the productivity and efficiency for an entertainment agency or in-house fashion house in the San Francisco, Los Angeles or San Diego area.
I have also been a member of the International Assocaition of Business Communicators since 2008 and I am actively involved in my sorority, Alpha Phi. I also enjoy running, reading, spending time with my puppy Rico and being involved in leadership and volunteer initiatives. I look forward to graduating and seeing what I can offer the business world.
