Hi! I am happy to report that I am Tell Your Story Brand Communications’ newest team member. Every once in awhile, I’ll share my point of view on different topics in the world on the blog for your (and my) enjoyment. Now, I’ll tell you a little about myself…
With my college years quickly coming to a close, my life is about to be thrown for a loop. Not only will I be done with college, but the idea of a “big girl” job will not be so far off. After graduating with a double-major in Public Relations and Communication, I hope to gain a public relations or marketing communications position working at an agency or in-house for a corporate brand.
In my spare time, I love to run and exercise – especially when Chicago decides beautiful weather is appropriate. Due to being a bit of a bookworm, I suppose reading is where my love for writing came from.
My public relations experience all started when I was selected to be a consumer marketing intern at the reputable GolinHarris international public relations agency. Completely overwhelmed and intimidated at first, I quickly learned the ins and outs of public relations by working on several clients in the food industry. At GolinHarris, I wrote media materials such as press releases, pitches, fact sheets, and corporate announcements. I even got to do some writing for a corporate web site, which was awesome. Needless to say, I fell in love with public relations as a whole and never looked back.
So, this is what brings me to you and Tell Your Story, i.e., a love for public relations and a desire to show you what I can do. I hope to bring everything that I’ve learned both in work experience and class work full circle so that my work produced here is the best that it can be. That being said, I’m excited for this opportunity and cannot wait to get to work.
