Summary

Hello!

I am a recent graduate of the University of Oregon. I hold a Bachelor of Arts from the School of Journalism and Communication with a concentration in Public Relations and a Spanish minor.

My passion for communication and the written word has grown and developed through my studies and internships in the past four years. I am confident that my education and extracurricular activities have prepared me for a career in strategic communication and public relations.

I am currently looking for career opportunities, and would love  to work for a company or organization that I can grow with. 

Outside of the professional world, I'm an outdoor enthusiast with a love of skiing and white-water rafting. I love to travel and hope to see every corner of the world one day. 

Please take a moment to view my portfolio. I appreciate your time and consideration. Please contact me with any questions or potential opportunities.

Best,

Kelsey
