For Love, Life & Coffee

For Love, Life & Coffee is a twentysomething's guide to life and love with coffee's help. The lifestyle blog follows my postgrad adventures, and hopefully will continue to grow as I do. I manage the blogging, social media, graphics and (most) photography you see on the blog. It truly has become my creative outlet.

Career

Texas Tech University

Bachelor of Arts, Public Relations

The moment I saw a picture of a press box at the London 2012 Olympics, I knew I wanted to go into communications. The first public relations class I took, I was in love. After studying abroad in London, I knew I wanted to study global comms. Writing is my passion, public relations is my love.
