About me

Proficient communicator, strong writer and driven leader willing to learn and work as a team. Able to work with an array of people to obtain success. Currently a third-year student studying Advertising and Public Relations at Michigan State University. I'm interested in a broad range of studies including advertising, marketing and public relations. Experience includes planning events across campus, working with teams of 4+ to meet deadlines, creating advertisement campaigns and writing blogs, news releases and pitches.

Outside of school and work, I enjoy various outdoor activities such as camping and biking. I further enjoy spending time with family and traveling to Lake Michigan.
