First, here’s my resume. Now we can get to the good stuff.
It was at Berea College that I began studying speech and communication studies and learned theory-based approaches to persuade, mediate, and target audiences. This part of my education was fortified by the well-rounded social justice-based liberal arts curriculum as well as the diverse pool of students that I attended with that taught me all about intersectional feminism and societal accessibility. Those experiences, combined with my own as an LGBTQ+ Appalachian, gave me a unique perspective on underprivileged populations in the United States and their issues of education, violence, and the like. In response, my time there yielded some political experiences, such as working on campaigns and volunteering for policy advocacy events to advance platforms and policies to advance those populations. Due to this exposure to many worldviews in a politically charged setting, I am now extremely experienced at communicating the importance of policy reform and social change of many kinds to the audiences that most need to hear it.
My public relations skills were further finessed at the infamous S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University where I worked tirelessly to attain the education needed to begin my own business and help others. I continued my political activism during this time with nonprofit work and volunteering for campaigns that promoted values that I believed in, primarily educational objectives and progressive policies on topics that pertain to equality and equity, such as homelessness, poverty, and race.
These experiences are carried with me to this day, and it continues to express my work as a PR professional and an entrepreneur. I currently have a couple of projects in development and am also looking for new full-time work to pour myself into.
Now here we are, ready to sit for a coffee and discuss the future.
