Experience:

I have been involved in several career-making opportunities starting from my work as a camp councilor at a young age. After I completed my sophomore year at Quinnipiac University I interned at United Stations Radio Stations' main headquarters in New York City. While at the company, founded by legend Dick Clark, I worked in the comedy department. While there I wrote several movie reviews that were played on air at various stations. My work at United Stations also included assisting in video shoots and conducting research about current hot topics in today’s world.

The following summer I earned an internship at the up and coming jewelry company, Diamonds Unleashed by Kara Ross. The company is a complete women’s empowerment movement specializing in making women feel confident and giving back to girls in need. While at Diamonds Unleashed I performed numerous tasks providing me with sharp skills. My work includes helping coordinate social media posts, writing samples for the bi-weekly newsletter, and assisting in the company’s public relations work including writing press releases.

My interests and spirit comes a lot from my time spent exploring the world. During my sophomore year I spent a semester studying abroad in Ireland where I explored numerous different countries and cultures. My favorite travels include trips to Italy, Spain, Hungary, Switzerland, France, England, Austria, Germany, and Belgium. While abroad I developed a certain flair for adventure and communication.

My main passions of writing and communicating are the passions that guide me in both my everyday and professional life.
