“This is my last year as a Spartan so it’s time to start thinking about where I want to go next. I’m extremely interested in working at an agency and having a variety of day to day responsibilities. I’m currently working with the MSU Innovation Center on their communications team. I also work part-time on the Michigan Community Service Commission’s communications team! Before I settled in at my current two jobs, I worked at the County Road Association of Michigan as their Public Relations Intern.”

During my time at MSU, I have worked at the library, been a student writer in the Broad College of Business, and now I am a student practitioner at Martin Waymire, a public relations and marketing firm in Lansing with a foundation in public policy. I love agency life because every day is different and exciting projects are always popping up!”

“I am a junior, so I have a bit of time to think about my future, but I am seriously interested in every aspect of PR and could see myself going anywhere after graduating. Right now, I am working for MSU HR in their communications office and I am also the Public Relations Manager for the Associated Students of Michigan State University. In the past I have also run social media for a local election in my hometown of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan!”
