Hard-working communications professional with a background in writing, PR and collateral production. Dedicated to creative thinking and out-of-the-box ideas.
I'm a well-educated, inquisitive mind who is always looking for my next adventure. I love stories; telling stories, hearing stories, and finding stories. I have my M.A. in mass communication from the University of Florida, and my B.S. in communication from the University of Tennessee. Most of my professional experience has been in PR firms. I interned at several while working toward my undergrad, and gained international experience while interning with a small boutique firm in Dublin, Ireland. After earning my B.S., I began work with one of Tennessee's largest independent PR firms, and earned various awards for my writing and work ethic during my tenure. I was recruited to work for a large, multinational corporation after two years with the PR firm, and currently work with that company. My current role is very multifaceted, and involves educating myself in different industries quickly. I work quite a bit in the construction, development and renewable energy realms, but have a plethora of "random" industry knowledge thanks to my extensive agency work. I'm quick and willing to learn, and am dedicated to making my first effort the best.
I work evenings and weekends, and am very willing to negotiate payment terms. I am working to get more freelance/consultant opportunities, and am very flexible and willing to work with your needs.
