Designer and Founder

Diaverlie Clothing

I started my own clothing line as a junior in high school. Design and fashion have always been passions of mine which is why I started it. It began as just a hobby and then others started noticing it. I ended up purchasing a six color screen printer, registered as an official business, and started selling clothes to friends, peers, and people who lived across the country I had never met before. I currently sell it online and in the Failsafe store located in downtown Oregon City, Or.

Public Relations-Event Planning

Flux Magazine

With this position I researched promotional items for the magazine and compiled a master list of all the awards for the past 18 years. I also planned the Spring Release party for the annual award winning magazine. The event was a steam punk fashion show and The Bug Chicks from Portland, Oregon were there demonstrating bug eating and providing bugs for guests to try. The event was based on two of the stories featured in the magazine. More than 250 people attended the event and more than 70 issues of the magazine were sold. It was considered to be the most successful release party the magazine has seen in its 18 years of existence.

Teachers Assistant

Autistic Children Activity Program

I worked for ACAP during the summers of '09-'10 as a summer job and loved it. It taught me a lot about myself as well as autism, which I had no experience with whatsoever. It was my job to provide childcare for the children at the summer campy by playing with them, feeding them, and making for sure they made it to and from field trips safely. It was a very challenging job but gave me a lot of useful experience. After working for ACAP I feel like I can do anything and I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to work there.

I have worked for Zumiez off and on since I was 16-years-old. At this time I worked at the Woodburn location for the summer and then transferred to the Eugene location when I moved back for school. The location in Woodburn was in a main tourist attraction outlet mall so I was working in a busy fast pace retail store helping customers and maintaining the store. In three short months I sold more than $60,000 for the store.

Bio

I am from a small town called Gladstone, Oregon located just outside of Portland. I am currently a senior at the University of Oregon studying advertising and public relations in the journalism school with a minor in business. I am an active member in my sorority Kappa Delta and Allen Hall Public Relations. My dream job would be working in the music industry using the skills I have obtained at school and do event planning within public relations. My dream job within advertising would be to work for an advertising agency in the creative department. I have a strong passion for what I do which I believe is extremely important in order to be successful. 

Interest

There are a lot of things that make me tick, but I will just name a few things that really shape who I am. One of those things is traveling. I really enjoy emerging myself into different cultures and locations and hope to have the opportunity to travel the world. So far my favorite location has been Sydney, Australia. I would love to live there someday. I also love music, it has become a big part of my life. I am always going to concerts to see my favorite artists and I have been a singer ever since I was young which is something I am very passionate about. In addition to the passion for music, I also love to dance. I have never been a part of a team or anything like that it is just something I do on my own and always find myself doing. I enjoy writing creative stories and hope to write a book someday whenever I can find the time. I also love staying active by playing soccer, tennis, and snowboarding whenever I have the opportunity. I also love photography, taking pictures myself as well as enjoying the work of others. Painting is another thing I love doing as a way to relax or relieve stress, but unfortunately I don't always have the time for it. Laughter is my favorite thing so another thing I absolutely love doing is going to comedy shows or just watching stand up on television. Laughter is definitely the best cure for anything so I try to fill each day with it.
