I am a senior public relations major at Kent State University, and I am graduating in May. Terrified? Completely. Ready? Absolutely.

My personality can never be pinpointed. I am a grounded person who is aEyeslso ready to fly. I can change from responsible to wild or crazy to sane in a blink of an eye. With no idea of where I want to go or exactly what I want to do, the unknown future excites me. My goal is to find something and somewhere that I love and just be happy with who I am and the choices I have made.

I was born and raised in Apollo, Pa., a small, but quaint, rural town located about 40 minutes from PittsbuCowboyrgh. A country girl at heart, I like hunting, quad riding, fishing, canoeing, horseback riding, rope swings and bonfires. Being outdoors is a part of who I am, which is why sustainability is of such an interest to me.

Besides the nature, I am also interested in public relations – go figure. Every aspect of the field intrigues me. This semester I am interning at Secrest Arboretum and Flash Communications. Throughout college, I believe I have put everything I am into learning, living and breathing the public relations profession. Quite simply, it just turns me on.

Education/Experience highlights:

• 3 years of experience and 5 internships in the public relations field with Project Learn of Summit County, United Steelworkers, Flash Communications, Blattner Brunner and Secrest Arboretum
• 3-year member of PRSSA at Kent State, serving as the vice president of membership from 2006-2007 and vice president of fundraising from 2007-2008
• 2-year fundraising director of Black Squirrel Radio, Kent State’s student-run radio station (link)
• Recipient of the David A. Meeker Endowed Scholarship and Robert Burdock Award for outstanding public relations student
