From Florida to California.
After receiving my bachelor’s degree in public relations, I gave myself 35 days to move to California – with no guarantees of where I would live or work. The adventure led me to jobs at Quiksilver, Equinox Newport Beach, Hyatt Huntington Beach, ReFresh Talent Agency, T&Co. PR agency, as well as modeling gigs and volunteering for events like the Sunset Strip Music Festival and Fashion’s Night Out in West Hollywood. Working at Chapman University as the public relations coordinator, I was responsible for media relations, writing and news monitoring, as well as event production for the Summer Concert Series.
In my most recent position with Celebrity Cruises as the event and sales specialist, I handled all aspects of event activations in LA and Orange County: from finding and working with vendors, planning experiential concepts, designing marketing materials, preparing training guides, to conducting market research and serving as Celebrity’s brand ambassador at events, interacting with trade partners, consumers and media.
I have a passion for the communications field, a sharp focus for detail, an ability to find humor in the chaos and an innate sense of urgency to promptly respond to team and client requests. I have skills in design and social media as well, and can effectively collaborate in a cross-generational workplace.
