Day to Day

A typical work day is a combination of meetings, creative projects, and writing. I collaborate with multiple departments and teams to spread the word about the initiatives they are working on to the rest of the company. We use a variety of platforms to communicate these initiatives including digital monitors, emails, newsletters, an internal website, and videos. I create content and help manage each of those platforms.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Collaborating with other people is vital to what I do. Being able to manage multiple projects and prioritize those projects is another necessity. And having a drive and hunger to do more than what is asked of you will always leave an impression.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Get an internship. Internships give you real work experience and help you determine what you like to do. Internships give you the ability to try new things, and hone your craft.
