I’m currently seeking alternate career paths while I continue to freelance and hustle as a publicist. I’m currently working remotely with Purpose Public Relations after leaving Scoville due to an unexpected move to Portland, Oregon. I’m seeking a part or full-time job using the skills I’ve already honed in PR and journalism. As a publicist, I am 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 days a week. I was responsible for daily paginating 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. I have thrived in every job I have ever worked.

Heroin Monster

While heroin can destroy a person's physical and mental state, its devastating effects aren't limited to the user. An addict's friends and family feel the results of opiate addiction as well. Little brothers lose their role models and mothers lose their children.

Cutting a Pineapple Has Never Been Easier

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.
