Sports, news and feature writing, copy editing, layout design and photography.I would love to get involved with sports marketing/advertising/PR, but am also passionate about writing and reporting on news and athletics. I'm excited about anything media-related, and am looking forward to finding a job that fits my interests and passions in life!
I will be graduating from the University of Tulsa in May with a Bachelor's degree in English. My minor is in Spanish, which I am fluent in, and I have a certificate in Journalism Studies as well. I've had editorial experience through my internships at TulsaPeople Magazine and Ackerman McQueen, as well as through my job as a staff writer, Managing Editor and Editor-in-Chief at TU's campus newspaper. I am currently working at the Reynolds Center Athletic Ticket Office and as an editorial intern at TulsaPeople Magazine. I also just finished a PR internship with NatureWorks, Inc.
