Education: Currently a junior at the University of Oregon. My educational goal is to pursue a B.A. in public relations, study two years of Portuguese, and complete an internship in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with a cultural tourism business called Rio EnCantos.
Work: After years of entry-level retail jobs, I decided to find work that connected to my education. I began at Lane Community College. I worked as a peer mentor to the various College Success Learning Communities, and as a Community Assistant & Social Media Coordinator for Titan Court student housing. I currently am the communications assistant at the Museum of Natural and Cultural History at the University of Oregon.
Community: I strive to be an interdependent citizen of my local community in Eugene. Out of my volunteer experience I’ve most enjoyed working with KLCC 89.7 FM and the Eugene Marathon. I am the founding president of the chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars at Lane Community College, striving to recruit students for local and national volunteer opportunities. I will transition to an officer position with the chapter at UO in 2014, working with transfer graduates from Lane. Please let me know of any volunteer opportunities.
