Graduation date: December 2019
Tell us about your experience studying PR at Kent State: I have learned so much from the amazing faculty in the PR sequence here at Kent State. The PRKent family truly operates as a family; I have found so much support from alumni during my time at Kent! As a 2019 Bateman participant, I was given the opportunity to plan and implement an entire public relations campaign. This hands-on experience helped me to not only learn more about strategic planning, but network with professionals in the field who have a passion for diversity and inclusion initiatives. I have been inspired by my peers during courses, and the incredible amount of opportunities to develop yourself as a professional help give you guidance as you apply for internships and jobs.
Tell us about your career goals
In the future, I hope to find employment with a PR agency in the Greater Cleveland area. I want to focus on lifestyle PR and supporting small business and businesses run by female entrepreneurs. If we are talking big picture, then I definitely see myself making the switch to nonprofit PR someday. I want to be sure that I am using my skills to help tell the stories of those who have been silenced.
