Hi there, I’m your 2019-2020 VP of Fundraising! I’m currently a senior here at GVSU studying Advertising and Public Relations, with a minor in writing. I spent this past summer working as a Marketing and Web intern at Hello West Michigan, a nonprofit in Grand Rapids. I will continue working with the team at Hello West Michigan throughout the school year and assisting with creating social media content, interacting with candidates, writing blog posts, and event planning. I have held previous internship positions with University Communications at Grand Valley State University and with the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix. In the future, I hope to continue working for a nonprofit business with opportunities to interact with many individuals and in event planning!

On-campus, I also serve as the Vice President of Public Relations for the Panhellenic Association. Some goals I have for the upcoming year in PRSSA is to plan at least one fundraising event a month, to plan for PRSSAIC 2020 beginning as early as November 2019, and increase the total amount of sponsorships. I am looking forward to getting to know fellow E-board members, collaborating with Wayne State University’s chapter, and for PRSSAIC in October (not to mention, I am especially excited about the layover at the Denver Airport in  CO… let’s talk conspiracy theories)! 

While I am an East Michigan native, I have loved spending my time in West Michigan upon coming to GV. I enjoy exploring downtown Grand Rapids or spending the day in Grand Haven near the beach. Some of my favorite things to do are going to concerts, trying new breweries, finding unique local bites, and checking out nearby West Michigan cities with her friends.  After graduation, I hope to move out of state and explore a completely new area to me such as Colorado or North Carolina.
