Media Relations and Freelance Journalism in Edmond, Oklahoma
I am a public relations undergraduate at Oklahoma Christian University where I serve as the Agency Director for our nationally ranked student-run PR agency, Eagle PR. I work as an associate for the greatest team in professional sports, the Oklahoma City Thunder. I have a passion for writing and sports, and I hope you will check out some of my writing samples and blog posts. I am also a freelance writer for Edmond Life & Leisure, a NewsOK Contributor and previously worked as a sports journalist for OC’s newspaper, The Talon.
I'm passionate about volunteering and standing with those whose voice isn't heard. I've done media relations work for the Student Veterans of America, and I work with my uncle in his nation-wide anti-bullying campaign, Stand for the Silent. I have also done creative media production for a pet adoption awareness campaign in my hometown.
I am a member of OC’s Track and Cross Country team that was recognized by the Heartland Conference for top student-athlete GPA. With the support of my family and teammates, I was able to become OC's first NCAA Division II runner to be named to the College Sports Information Directors of America's Academic All-District 6 honor team. The CoSIDA honor recognizes student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.
Politics are an important issue to me. I exercise my sovereignty by partaking in gubernatorial campaigns and other volunteer services during the election season.
In 2015, I was selected among the state's top college students to attend the Oklahoma Summer Policy Institute. I also handled different aspects of public relations and communications interning with Congressman Tom Cole in his Norman office. I stay up-to-date on current events serving on Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s Student Leadership Council. I recently became a team member of the debate club, OC Forensic Empire.
