I am originally from South Burlington, Vermont and moved to Utah when I was a junior in high school. I am now a junior at the University of Utah study Mass Communication. After I graduate in December of 2012, I hope to get a job in the event management field.

During the fall semester of 2011, I studied abroad in Florence, Italy where I lived and traveld for four months. Once returning home I became a Global Ambassador for International Studies Abroad. With this position, I advise future study abroad students and advertise for the company on campus.

I was recently offered an internship for the summer of 2012 working for an event planning company, White Ginger Events. I hope this will be the beginning of my many endeavors working in event management.
