why prssa?

 I joined PRSSA for a lot of different reasons, but the two most important to me are the people and the opportunities. When I was first exposed to the group, I quickly realized that the people involved were people that I would enjoy interacting and working with and had goals very similar to my own. 

Why wayne?

Wayne State is special to me because it's home. Going to school and building a my career just a couple of miles from where our teams play and fans gather makes me feel very connected to the growing city. I think Wayne State is special is the college's diversity. The diversity at Wayne State, in my opinion, is one of the best things the school has to offer. 

Future Goals:

I'm still progressing toward discovering the more precise aspects of my future goals, but I do have a few general ideas. In the future, I would love to lend my developed public relations and communications skills to a position somewhere in the city of Detroit; to be a part of the cities rebuild in some way.
