L. Wylie Shepard




I am a creative, personable, and dedicated person who loves to learn and to be challenged. I have the ambition to work hard and succeed in any given environment.


As a current student at the University of Utah, I have completed upper-division math, English, and French classes while continuing to expand my proficiency with Microsoft Office and Adobe CS5 programs such as Photoshop and Dreamweaver. I have also grown to possess very strong communication and writing skills in the process of taking classes to fulfill my Mass Communication major. I can offer a unique outlook on any situation and provide the perfect solution.

I was born in Boston, Massachusetts and lived in the city for 14 years before moving to Park City, Utah during my freshman year of high school. I graduated from Park City High School in June of 2008 and went on to attend the University of Utah. I began my first year at the U without any idea of what I wanted to major in but throughout the last four years I have found that journalism is what I would like to do for the rest of my life.

I have always been interested in medical sciences and I hope to be able to apply that interest to my journalism career. I am currently working for the Clinical Neurosciences Center at the University of Utah Hospital where I have had the opportunity to work on multiple studies investigating neurological disorders and stroke. I would like to be able to use the knowledge I have gained from my time at the CNC to write informative journalistic articles in the medical field.
