PROFESSIONAL STATEMENT

I am currently a senior at Saint Joseph's University. I am majoring in Communications with a minor in Marketing. I studied abroad my Spring semester of junior year in Florence, Italy. This amazing experience helped me to become self-reliant, independent and more self-confident. I realized that I love new experiences and meeting new people.

I also believe in having a good work ethic for myself by working hard and always putting all of my effort into what I am doing. I enjoying working and improving on any tasks that are put in front of me. I always try to go above and beyond, rather than only what I'm suppose to do. Some of these qualities have been inherently part of me and my background. While working at Beautiful Social, I had to always strive to be more creative in helping to promote their educational programming. I loved working with all of the team leaders, students and educational programmers.

I have always enjoyed working with people in a busy and active environment. My days of being a restaurant hostess trained me to always put the customer first in every way and to handle personalities and keep a cool demeanor. I love using social media throughout any job or position. While an intern at JZ Events, I had to sift through pictures to find the right settings to be used for other events. Everything was very connected and it was rewarding to attend an event after all of the many planning stages. It is exciting to me to visualize the end result of a well planned event. I believe social media plays a key role in the many phases of life and events; knowing how to best utilize the selection process is a learned skill. I really have enjoyed this and have always enjoyed working closely in small groups to get the job done.
