Presently, I am a senior at the University of Oregon working toward a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism, with a major in public relations and minors in communication studies and French. After my expected graduation in June 2013, I plan to move to Colorado to pursue my career and enjoy the sun!
Originally, I planned on majoring in communication studies, until I realized I was more interested in applying communication theories and ideas instead of researching or studying them, which led me to public relations. After a brief internship at the Boulder County Health Department in Boulder, Colo., I decided that I was most interested in government public relations, specifically related to public health, and I have also taken an interest in nonprofit and agency public relations.
Aside from school, I focus much of my energy on training in roller derby. I am a member of the Emerald City Roller Girls. Hopefully I will soon be eligible for the draft and make one of the competing teams.
I like to try new hobbies and I love spending time outside (Oregon weather permitting).
