Kelly Giles is a PR major with business acumen and design sense looking for a path that blends her passions for efficiency, strategy and creativity -- and if I'm lucky, evolutionary psychology. The closest she's come is leading an 80-person student-run magazine out of debt and into full-color in under a year.
