Advocates For Children
A natural storyteller and communicator, I am confident that my previous success in various communications functions, as well as my strong writing, photography, design, and videography skills, make me an ideal candidate similar positions.
In two of my recent roles at Chattahoochee Technical College and Gwinnett Technical College, I was responsible for the implementation of the long- and short-term strategies. This encompassed the writing of media releases, speeches, fact sheets and newsletters, liaising with journalists and other media, and using social media platforms to create engagement and discussion. Furthermore, I am well trained and versed in media relations and crisis communications. My crisis communications plans are used throughout the state by other colleges and health departments.
As someone who enjoys the process of writing and content creation, as well as the technical aspects of social and web related media, I feel that I could be a strong member of the team. I am highly proficient in Microsoft Office products, as well as the majority of the Adobe Creative products. I have developed quite a few websites using WordPress and managed their content with ease using that content management system. My technical skills and strong talents in creating, writing, and producing communication pieces have been well praised through my career. In addition, my organizational skills have allowed me to prioritize schedules and complete projects within time and budget guidelines.
