I am a Hoosier, born and raised. I graduated from Butler University in May of 2009 with a degree in Journalism concentrating on Public Relations and Advertising and a minor in Visual Arts. During my time at Butler I had the opportunity to study abroad in Rome, Italy, living in a small apartment near the Vatican. I spent a semester exploring the city, learning about the history, art and architecture of Ancient Rome while taking courses in Renaissance and Baroque art.
I currently work in public relations at Y&L PR, a division of Young & Laramore, a national full-service advertising agency, whose services range from strategic marketing and proprietary research to multi-platform media planning and buying, and creative in every imaginable platform.
I have a tremendous amount of interest in PR, advertising, media relations and the arts. As a newbie, I have come to recognize the significance of social media to express creativity and make beneficial connections. I have a strong interest in the travel and tourism industry along with media relations and package design. In my free time I enjoy traveling to new places, meeting new people, and eating great food. A true go-getter, I love adventures big and small. Anything outdoors and you can count me in! Bike rides, kayaking and hiking are a few of my favorites.
