I am a natural communicator interested in media relations and event planning. I helped create awareness for companies such as ASAPostal, the University of Oregon’s bike program and Oregon Medical Group. I helped events in the local community by using media relations to promote their brand.
As a Registration Specialist and Events Coordinator for Oregon Medical Group, I work with patients and insurance companies. I also plan the company’s events, which involved a fundraiser called Stuff the Boot for Relay for Life. As well as working with a company called Bags of Love to collect clothing and supplies for children in crises. I also have experience in media relations working for ASAPostal; where I created a media kit to help promote their small local business.
As a student in the school of journalism, I have learned how to communicate with real clients such as the City of Eugene. I helped to promote their summer programs with a media kit that highlighted their Full Moon rising summer camp.
I also have taken many law and political science classes, which sparked my interest in law and politics. I have overseen many in school campaigns that involved drinking and driving awareness for high schooners. Along with planning an event called Every 15-minutes which involved a mock car accident at her high school. I was also the founder of an anti-bullying committee in high school. During my time on these committees, I oversaw a group of ten people that helped plan events, including a flash mob of around 100 people and PSAs to bring awareness to these issues.
I am currently attending the University of Oregon where I am studying Public Relations with a plan to attend Law school in fall of 2016. In the future, I hope to work for a crisis communication firm in a large city and focus on my interest in politics.
