Born and raised in a suburb of Los Angeles, I am currently a senior studying Public Relations at USC's Annenberg School of Communications and Journalism, with minors in French and Digital Studies.
This past summer, I worked as a media relations intern for the top network, CBS, in Studio City. I learned about crisis management and communications during the controversial fifteenth season of Big Brother, aided social media efforts for the first season of the summer hit Under The Dome, helped with the publicity and social media efforts that supported the release of the network's new fall shows and created written materials for existing CBS shows. I also providef assistance during the TCA Press Tour, where I helped with check-in, answered questions for and provided assistance to attendees, helped with the electronic press rotation, walked talent down the Red Carpet of the afterparty for CBS, Showtime and The CW, and provided additional assistance to the CBS Photo team during the afterparty.
Before my internship with CBS, I was an intern with Click Communications, an online public relations agency located in North Hollywood. With Click, I was responsible for researching new online media contacts, compiling a press database, crafting and sending pitches to online journalists and bloggers, and helping with creative brainstorming for various publicity efforts.
I also previously interned with Outward Media, Inc., a multi-channel marketing data firm, where I created an interactive social media strategy that led to a 200 percent increase in brand awareness and online influence. I have also been involved with the Neon Tommy, an online news site sponsored by USC Annenberg, where I have written articles for the entertainment and art sections.
I love music, and I am the business manager for the USC a cappella group Overflow, for which I handle all external communications and coordinate performance opportunities. Additionally, as a fan of the a cappella group Straight No Chaser, I am the creator and co-host of the SNC FanChat, a podcast dedicated to the group. I also created SNC Quarter Notes, an online magazine for fans of Straight No Chaser and the general a cappella community.
This coming spring, I will be interning with The Walt Disney Company's Corporate division as the HR Communications & Engagement intern. I can't wait to see what the future has to offer in public relations and communications!
