My interest in storytelling led me to the School of Journalism and Communications at University of Oregon. In March, I will complete my degree in Advertising with a minor in Business. Currently, I work on multiple accounts as a media planner for Allen Hall Advertising. I will be relocating to Vancouver, WA and am excited to further my career as a media planner in the Portland area.

On the weekends I am a portrait photographer specializing in weddings and senior sessions. When you're in the advertising industry, your work follows you home. Photography allows me to get my mind off big picture stress points, such as budgets and schedules, and tell peoples' stories. Coming back down to the personal intricacies of why storytelling (aka good advertising) is so important, keeps me sane and the best media planner I can be.
