How would you describe yourself?
I have a passion for media and love every facet of it. I would describe myself as a media junkie. I enjoy exploring the outdoors, the beach in the summer, traveling, and experiencing different forms of the arts.
Where are you from?
I am from Basking Ridge, New Jersey. It is a great town outside of Morristown and about 45 minutes outside of New York City.
What should people know about you?
Some things you should know about me, I am very hard working and I plan on working for a branding agency or a Public Relations Firm after I graduate. I have a passion for new media and enjoy interpersonal communication. I currently work for Zebra Communications as Co-manager of the student run firm, helping local clients in the Wilkes Barre area with their public relations needs. I plan on graduating in Spring of 2016.
I originally was looking at Kings College for school, but since I was already up in the area, I took a look at Wilkes University. After I looked at Wilkes, I knew it was the place for me. I chose NEPA because I wanted to be away from home, but at the same time, I wanted to be accessible to go back to New Jersey.
How did you choose your major?
I have strong interpersonal skills and I enjoy great conversations. I originally wanted to go into radio and television because growing up I was always told that I had a voice for radio. Once I discovered Wilkes Universities public relations program and how I can integrate myself into Zebra Communications I was hooked.
What are your impressions of Wilkes-Barre?
I love the beauty of the Susquehanna river. My freshman year my dorm room looked out onto the river. I feel that Wilkes-Barre has great environmental appeal. The Colleges in the community have made a great impact on the town but there still needs to be improvements.
What would keep you here in NEPA when you graduate?
I feel for young PR professionals, there needs to be more opportunities. I would love to stay in Wilkes-Barre if there were guaranteed job opportunities.
What do you hope your future looks like?
I would love to run my own branding agency, or strategy based PR agency. I want to travel the world working for different clients.
What do you hope to do when you graduate?
I would like to take some time to backpack through Europe and find a great job in communications, preferably in PR. If I keep up what I am doing I feel I am destined for success!
