Objective:

Seeking a Communication and/or Marketing Manager who would love a great communication graduate to rely on! My experience already includes working a trade show floor, shooting event pictures and writing quick (and effective) articles for the number one hairdressing magazine in the US. Im comfortable working a room, not to mention a pen, a phone and social media. Ive been proud of the many opportunities in my life to lead, and I believe leadership comes from a commitment to responsibility; a belief that many are better than a few and that dependability, adaptability and accountability are all pre-requisites for success. A smile doesnt hurt as well, not to mention the words sure, Ill take care of it especially when everyone else is going home.
