Why did you choose PR? I have an artistic background, so I was drawn to the creative scope of journalism, PR, advertising and new media. Additionally, I enjoy problem solving as well as meeting new and interesting people.
Best advice you could give someone looking to start their career in PR: Work hard in all of your classes and form relationships with your professors. Most professors will be more than willing to help you find connections when they see your talents and hard work. Apply for internships and chock your resume full of meaningful experience. Lastly, be coachable and willing to learn.
I’m happiest when… spending time with my friends and family! The pandemic has changed what that entails, but we like to go on hikes, watch movies and try new recipes together.
What’s something you have always wanted to try, but haven’t had the chance to?
I would love to live in a different country even if it’s just for a little while. Maybe even get to utilize my extremely limited Spanish speaking skills!
Go-to Netflix shows: New Girl, The Great British Baking Show and Real People.
If you could see any artist in concert, who would it be? Hozier for sure. I got to see him in 2019 and it was the best concert I’ve ever been to.
Favorite pastimes: Cooking, baking, reading, watching trashy reality TV and traveling!
