University of Georgia

Master of Arts, Public Relations

I've been lucky enough to be a double dawg. I've done both my bachelor's and master's at the University of Georgia. The university has given me wonderful opportunities, like joining PRSA and getting to do a full PR campaign for a client. Pictured is the famous arch at UGA, a landmark I have known and loved for years.
