Orange County, CA
As a graduate of California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo, I value the my school's motto of "Learn by Doing." I hold it true to all areas of life, which makes me strive to try any and every area of my profession as possible.
By earning my Bachelors of Science in Recreation, Parks and Tourism Administration, with a concentration in Event Management, I developed a well-rounded background that allows me to be flexible in my career path. I have been lucky enough to work primarily with non-profit organizations.
I am a freelance event planner, marketing assistant, and web developer. I have worked on all kinds of events from races, grand tastings, banquets, and weddings. All have been very different but a learning experience for me regardless.
My placement in the marketing departments at USA Water Polo and Susan G. Komen has given me invaluable experience. I have worked to lead my own marketing campaigns, provided materials for holiday gift guides, and prepare materials for supporting events and media needs. I was given the opportunity to manage multiple social media accounts to increase the comapnies' personal connections with its clients and members.
My experience with web development has been prominent with USA Water Polo and Komen Orange County, and came unexpected. Using skills I developed throughout high school and college, I have been able to collaborate on major websites.
