I am a passionate public relations professional, skilled in social media and event management. I have experience in both traditional and digital public relations practices, as well as media relations, and strategic communications.
I’m extremely lucky to have found my passion in the art of PR when I was only 14 years old. My work in public relations began in high school, where I led publicity efforts for my high school theater department for all 4 years. My passion for and interest in PR only intensified throughout my college career at Florida State University.
At Florida State, I was given several opportunities to grow and learn new public relations skills. I was a member of the Florida Public Relations Association student chapter for 3 years. Membership in this organization introduced me to communications professionals and gave me the chance to network beyond the small city of Tallahassee. I also held 3 Public Relations internships over the span of my college career in Orlando, Tallahassee, and New York City. These positions taught me the basic skills needed to succeed, and gave me a wide knowledge of the various PR techniques.
Currently, I am seeking public relations employment after graduating from Florida State in May with my B.S. degree in Information, Communication, and Technology. As I move forward in my professional career, I am interested primarily in the disciplines of entertainment, consumer, fashion, and lifestyle PR. I’m truly passionate about my work, and always interested in hearing about new and exciting opportunities. Feel free to contact me via email at AWhitakerPR@gmail.com.
