Personal Summary

I am a motivated, energetic young professional looking to use my interpersonal skills in a stimulating communications environment. Having studied public relations at Humber College, I have developed a keen interest in this discipline. I am a strong writer and speaker in both English and French, and would love the opportunity to further develop these abilities in a corporate setting.
