Posted on June 7, 2012 | 2 CommentsMoving from sunny Los Angeles to rainy Seattle, I've had the opportunity to work in two major PR hubs. Because of this, I've had many Seattleites ask me about my experience in LA. With those questions, I've also heard some assumptions about LA PR that were clearly drawn from popular media. Below, I attempt to break the myths.
Posted on May 23, 2012 | 2 CommentsMy fellow English majors and I get a lot of grief for choosing a major that is supposedly “useless.” I’ve heard all the jokes: “So your most marketable skill will be being able to say ‘Do you want fries with that?’”; “Everyone speaks English, why would you need to go to college for it?” and my personal favorite, “So you want to teach?”

It’s tough, and fighting through it on your own can be confusing, frustrating and absolutely terrifying. We also know that when all of your hard work pays off and you land your first internship or job, it’s totally worth it!

Posted on August 19, 2011 | 2 CommentsIt was my first day as a PR intern at Weber Shandwick Seattle and what was I thinking about? All the countless hours spent perfecting essays, practicing presentations and studying the history of public relations. Ok, maybe not…but all the lessons I learned throughout school have helped me in both getting this coveted internship and applying those skills now that I’m here.
Posted on August 12, 2011 | No CommentsFrom time to time, I’m asked how I got started at Weber Shandwick Seattle. My responses generally vary from “my previous work experience” to “networking” to “pure and total luck.” While the truth may lie somewhere in the middle, how I honestly got a foot in the door (literally) was through my internship.
