Style and Design in Public Relations

This is one of the capstone courses that combined client writing, web design and graphic design elements. Through this course, I became proficient in Adobe Creative Suites and HTML5/CSS styling. The final outcome of the class was to create this digital resume and portfolio. My weekly articles for Auburn Family, The Corner News and Extension Daily can be found on my blog.


Public Relations Campaigns

This is one of the capstone courses that combined all the skills I have acquired during my time at Auburn. The final project was presented to the owner of Irish Bred Pub, a local restaurant that allowed my group to create a unique campaign for the company. My final project can be found in my portfolio.


Writing for Public Relations

This course put the technical skills learned in previous public relations courses to work.

I created press releases, pitches, social media posts, press conferences, scripts and more. My media kit can be found in my portfolio.
