I’m seeking a role that utilizes the communication and design skills that I’ve already honed in marketing, public relations and journalism. My most recent role was as an associate at a successful public relations firm in The Heights, however I was laid off due to coronavirus. Before that, I served as a marketing coordinator for Kevia and JourneeBox, a subscription box that I directly oversaw the launch for. In that role, I interpreted analytics to implement strategic marketing plans, designed web and email content, and sourced products from vendors — as well as designing the packaging and products themselves.
As a publicist, I was responsible for assessing a client’s outreach goal and crafting pitches around that goal, as well as finding aligned media and speaking. I have also “ghostwrote” for clients in many publications including MindBodyGreen, the Portland Business Journal, the Puget Sound Business Journal and more.
Before PR, I was the features/lifestyle editor at a newspaper that publishes five editions per week. I was responsible for daily pagination using InDesign, managing interns, overseeing the creation of magazines, managing social media and other editorial responsibilities.
I graduated from Texas State University in communications, with an emphasis in journalism, and a minor in sociology. Before my position at the paper, I worked two unpaid internships for two separate radio stations, KTSW 89.9 and NPR’s KUT 90.5, during my senior year. For both stations, I worked as a news reporter and produced daily content. I am passionate, hardworking, friendly and committed.

While the debate of whether or not pineapple belongs on pizza is long from over, there is no doubt that the fruit plays a vital role as a summertime flavor. A properly cut pineapple can garnish tropical drinks, complete a fruit cocktail, complement a shish kabob, or give that signature look to your upside-down cake.
Whether they are trying to perfect the scone or renew their grandmother's clam chowder recipe, every cook (sans vegans and the lactose intolerant) should be able to easily explain the difference between heavy cream and whipping cream.
