I'm a Public Relations senior in the Department of Communication and Marketing Minor with the School of Business. A few highlights for me during my time at Mason was participating in the Milan Media, Society and Culture study abroad program summer 2019, Student Ambassador representing both the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and Mason COMM assisting with transfer sessions to future students and interning as a Marketing and Communication Assistant both at the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) in D.C. and Sage Communications in Vienna.
I was able to apply my knowledge and skills by drafting press releases, conducting research and outreach for various projects, and creating content for shared media channels. These experiences, along with my education and a personal passion for cannabis advocacy over the last decade, has prepared me for the job I started in February, as the Education and Outreach Specialist for Beyond/Hello, a medical cannabis dispensary.
I’m really excited about launching my career, though I will miss my professors and mentors who have guided me and supported me throughout my time with CHSS and Mason COMM.
