Welcome to my online portfolio! I am currently in my senior year at California State University, Fresno studying mass communication and journalism with an emphasis in public relations. I have also earned certificates in marketing and special event coordinating.

I currently serve as the associate director of business operations and Web master for Fresno State’s first student-operated public relations firm as well as president and Web master of Fresno State PRSSA (Public Relations Student Society of America).

My goal is to work for an international public relations firm based in San Francisco. Currently, I hold the title of the public relations and community representative for Yosemite Ranch, a successful restaurant located in Fresno. I have developed and managed and implemented their marketing, public relations and social media strategies from scratch. I work closely with the owner, graphic designer and Web site creator to ensure a successful outlet for integrated marketing communication.

For the agency sector of public relations, I have done an internship with Mulberry Marketing Communications, which is an international public relations firm that holds acconts in Chicago, San Francisco, Munich, London and Melbourne. During this internship, I assisted in putting on a national campaign. I also contributed my skills in public relations through my media relations, written press materials and designing of their social media outlets. In addition, I personally researched and pitched prospective clients for the firm.

For the Non-profit sector of public relations, I have interned for Community Medical Centers,  in the communications department. I wrote many new articles for their Web site, researched and wrote fact sheets for the hospital as a whole and utilized effective media relations.
