What has been your experience with PRSSA? I became really involved with PRSSA my sophomore year and attended every meeting and most outside events. Junior year, I will be serving a more active role with the organization as the VP of Finance
Advice for incoming freshmen? Don’t be afraid to reach out to upperclassmen. We’re happy to give you advice about everything from classes and internships to what the best restaurant on Court Street is. It’s also great for networking years down the road. (The fact that I just referred to myself as an upperclassman is really weird and I don’t like it. Here’s some more advice: savor your time at OU. It flies by)
Hobbies: Volleyball, basketball, reading, blogging and eating!
Favorite OU memory? My OU memory actually happened in Asia, but it was thanks to a certification program that I am a part of at OU. It’s called the Global Leadership Center and I recently traveled to Vietnam to work on a business consulting project with the group. It was an amazing experience and definitely my favorite memory
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Working at either a boutique PR agency or in corporate communications. Hopefully, I’ll be living an active lifestyle and coaching high school volleyball
What is your biggest pet peeve? Slow walkers
What is your favorite reality show? I’m a reality TV junkie so it’s hard to pick just one, but my all time favorite reality show has to be Jersey Shore. I never missed an episode
Who is your PR idol? Demi Knight Clark. I love her story and her passion for life
What is your favorite quote? “The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails,” by William Arthur Ward
If you were an ice cream flavor, what would you be? Chocolate chip cookie dough
What is your favorite animal? Cats!
