About Me

As the daughter of a former zoo director, I have spent my life around zoos and aquariums.  I believe that they are more than just a place to look at animals.  Zoos and aquariums are a valuable center of education and conservation.  They give the public the chance to learn more about the world they live in and how to take care of it.

My belief in this mission has led me to seek out a career in public relations and marketing for zoos and aquariums.  After graduating from Miami University with a B.A. in Mass Communications, I was able to find an internship with the Akron Zoo in Ohio.  I worked in the communications department for a summer.  This exciting experience gave me further insight and increased my interest in the field.

I decided that I would continue my education by seeking a master’s a degree in public relations at Kent State University.  Currently, am in my second year, with hopes of graduating in the summer.  I am also a member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).  My favorite animal is the Red Panda.
