Samples of Work



Graduating in May 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies from West Virginia University. I am hoping to pursue a career in the marketing industry with a premise on sports and entertainment. I feel that I am qualified to work in this industry as I have developed strong communication skills from the courses I have taken at West Virginia University as well as through the relationships I have built throughout the years. I am a driven worker with a strong work ethic, not stopping until I have reached the goal that has been set out. My passion for working in the field of marketing runs as deep as my desire for new challenges. I am positive that my creativity, leadership, and hard work over the past four years in school will be evident in all tasks at hand.
