Education



Auburn University

In the fall of 2012, I started my college career at Auburn University. Four years later, I am now an Auburn University Alum. May 7, 2016, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in public relations and a minor in philanthropy and nonprofit organizations.


Public Relations

I chose to major in public relations at the end of my freshman year at Auburn University. Communicating, organization and writing have always been something I have enjoyed doing. I was accepted into the School of Communication and Journalism in the spring of 2014.


Philanthropy and Nonprofit Organizations

One of my passions in life has always been serving others in a way that not only benefits them but changes my life as well. When I heard about this minor I knew I wanted to be a part of it.


Skills



Social Media

As of April 2017, I have been in charge of all social media for the EAMC Foundation. This includes creating and posting content for Facebook and Instagram. These posts can be about daily activities at the hospital or promoting for the events we have throughout the year. Throughout college I served as a public relations intern at East Alabama Youth for Christ, I was required to update social media outlets. And while working with Evan and Co., I helped create social media posts and blog posts. Social media outlets I have worked with include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest.


Writing

While I have been working for the EAMC Foundation, I have written dozens of newsletters for the Auxiliary, newspaper articles about donations, upcoming events and other hospital-related news. I have also completed multiple writing courses. Because of these courses and my internship with Auburn Magazine, I have been taught and trained to write in AP Style. I have been taught the writing techniques for press releases, news articles, blogs and social media.


Planning

Because of my previous and current jobs and interning opportunities, I have the knowledge of what all goes into planning an event, wedding and fundraisers. I not only know about all the details that go into planning but I also now have access to vendors and suppliers contact information. Most importantly, however, I can efficiently and effectively maintain a budget. I have successfully planned multiple Auxiliary luncheons, fundraisers and other Foundation events. I was recently hired for two weddings to help in the planning and day-of tasks and ceremony.
