From a small, rainy town in the Cascade Mountains of Washington, to a crowded suburb of Houston, Texas, I wound up in the industrial town of Tulsa, Oklahoma, attending The University of Tulsa. The driving force behind my decision to attend the University of Tulsa (TU) was their impressive lightweight women's rowing team, and the opportunity to join team of such hardworking girls. However, after a personal back injury, I medically retired from the rowing team in late 2017.Now I continue my pursuit of a B.S. in Media Studies, with minors in both Marketing and Art. I intend to enter into the advertising field at the end of my four years in Tulsa.
I gained precious experience in my field working in the marketing sector of the University of Tulsa's Athletic Division. I continued my work with my university as a member of the Digital Communications Department in Tulsa. This past summer, I interned for Phillips 66 in the Communications and Public Affairs Department, where I supported the Graphic Design branch in print media, copywriting, advertising, and videography. Currently, I am a marketing intern for Hillcrest Medical Center. Most of my time there is spent shooting and editing video for Facebook advertisements, writing articles for weekly newsletters, and any other administrative responsibilities required by the team. I have also grown in the field by way of creating marketing plans for companies in various courses throughout my college career; I have designed posters, t-shirts, logos, letterhead, business cards, and plan-books for multiple associations and events within Tulsa, OK and Spring, TX.
