Springfield, Missouri

As a recent graduate of Missouri State University, I am currently seeking a job a full-time position in media that will lead to a meaningful career in advertising.

I am an Account Executive for an on-campus advertising agency: Opal Agency. It is our mission to make our clients and our members Shine Above the Rest.

I am also the Director of Programs for our collegiate chapter of the American Advertising Federation.

I am drawn to advertising because of its the ability to change a person's behavior with a single 30 second advertisement. I want to be a part of something that can change people's lives for the better.

Sports are a huge part of my life. I love how unpredictable sports can be. Underdogs are everywhere, not just in sports, but in every day life. Sports have given me the competitive drive that is shaping my career.

Here is a link to a YouTube clip that shows how awesome sports and advertising can be. Enjoy!
