I am a recent graduate from Longwood University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication Studies with a concentration in Organizational Communication and Public Relations. I graduated this May 2011 and I am currently looking for an entry level in marketing, preferably sports marketing, or some experience with event planning. I have some experience in auditing, marketing, creative design, and event planning. I have created marketing plans and events through classes I have taken while at Longwood as well as through my internship with the sports marketing department. I am a sorority member of Alpha Sigma Alpha. Since graduation I have been waitressing in a Restaurant called The Dunes in the Outer Banks of North Carolina and I am moving to Breckenridge Colorado this December. However, that is up for change depending on where job offers lead me.
I have always loved sports. I played travel sports growing up, mainly volleyball and basketball, but I have been involved with athletics since I was two years old. I joined my sorority Alpha Sigma Alpha my sophomore year and participate in philanthropy events like Special Olympics, S. June Smith Center, and Relay for Life. I enjoy seeing my family. I like hanging out with my friends, and I have found a new passion in art and really enjoy drawing and being creative. I like to read life quotes and my horoscopes in the morning to give me a morning boost. I always find the most peace in music; almost all music, and the beach is always my favorite place to be.
I'm looking for an internship and career to help further my knowledge and skills in organizational communication with a position in sports marketing or event planning.

Sports Marketing and Publicity
I had in office and out of office hours working on ways to promote Longwood's men's soccer team, men's basketball team, and women's basketball team. My duties were to increase average attendance at men's soccer by 30% which I surpassed tremendously; to increase awareness about our Division one athletic teams and increase fan loyalty; create effective promotional events that attracted Longwood students, staff, and faculty, as well as people from the Prince Edward County; and to create new promotions and marketing strategies. Along with these duties I created awareness around Longwood and Prince Edward County by making flyers and creating group events on Facebook. I had to create two promotions for men's soccer because that was my sport alone. I had a Breast Cancer Awareness night and an Honor Roll Student night for kids in the Prince Edward County.
