Hello! My name is Ashleigh Shields and I am a senior studying Public Relations and Strategic Communications at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. I will be graduating May 2015 with my Bachelors of Arts. I am originally from Valparaiso, Indiana, and hope to travel and live in Boston one day! I have a deep passion for health and fitness, and hope to work in a field that helps promote a healthy lifestyle! Working out is one of my favortie activites, and I have a deep passion for running. I am a marathon runner and a vegetarian! I love learning, taking pictures, and spending time with friends and family. I am a huge sports fan, and my two favorite teams are the Red Sox and Patriots!
Additionally, I have experience working as an intern at Indiana University Health Arnett’s marketing department, and a Visual Communications Intern at Purdue's Recreational Facility. Not only that, but I have also been a manager at Purdue’s Recreational Facility, an organization which was recently voted number one recreational facility in the United States. I am planning on going to graduate school to obtain my masters and PHD in Health Communication, and hopefully become a professor one day!
