About Me

 

I am a bicultural graduate from The University of Tennessee Knoxville. I graduated with a degree in public relations and enjoyed all four years of studying public relations. I wanted to be a public relations major because I have always enjoyed writing and reading. The writing side of public relations is my favorite part. Now that I have graduated I am pursuing a career in public relations. I hope to do PR for a non profit, but I am open to all opportunities. The button below contains my resumé if you would like a downloaded copy.

Situation Analysis
Build-A-Bear Workshop

In my public relations research course we did a situation analysis on Build-A-Bear Workshop Pay Your Age Day. I was part of a group of five and I was assigned to help with writing the intro, researching and writing information about the revenue, a brief history of the company, client overview, and creative history.

Media Kit for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

In one of my public relations courses where we created a media kit for anything that interested us. I decided to do mine on the new ride at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Orlando. The media kit contained a news release, a feature story, a blog post, a fact sheet and included images for each.

*note the ride is real plus the details, but the person in the feature story is not* 

Victoria Secret Campaign

In my public relations cases class we were assigned to find a company crisis and come up with a campaign for it. My group decided to do the Victoria Secret crisis when the CEO said it would never have transgender or plus size models in its fashion show. Our campaign was making transgender and plus size audiences feel more welcome in the store by using certain tactics. 

LEPC Campaign for Galena Park

This is a campaign I worked on with a group for our campaign course. It was for an LEPC that was a nonprofit. I helped work on the fact sheet, finding the demographics for the town, and brainstorming ideas with the team on the campaign itself.
