Print Copy Chief
December 2013 — December 2014
As the Print Copy Chief of the Golden Gate Xpress, I work with all the printed stories, headlines, captions, advertisements and additional blurbs in our weekly paper.

Golden Gate Xpress
Online Managing Editor
December 2013 — May 2014
As Online Managing Editor, I work with the entire team of editors to produce content throughout each week for the online version of the Golden Gate Xpress news, the student-run newspaper at SF State. We've got everything from same-day sports and event coverage to long form pieces accompanied by multimedia, and every story that we put together I edit and publish for online. I act as a front page editor for the website, headline writer and editor, and editor for SEO URLs for each story.
I work closely with the social media editor, setting goals and managing our social content and outreach, and multimedia editor, managing the creation and editing of multimedia pieces that include audio podcasts, videos, and audio slideshows. I also directly manage the sports editor and opinion editor with their reporters, weekly coverage, and overall quality of work.
While Online Managing Editor, I acted as a producer for a large online package we did on our Science Building's closure called Minimal Exposure: http://goldengatexpress.org/2014/03/05/minimal-exposure/
November 2013 — May 2014
As an intern, I support the staff at Cutline Communications with various client projects. I update spreadsheets and do weekly research for different client needs, and have also taken on coverage reports, building media lists, creating briefing docs, and discussing opportunities with journalists for clients. Interning with Cutline has provided me with a great skill set of both PR tasks, and great communication and prioritization skills overall.
June 2013 — August 2013
As an online intern for 7x7 Magazine, I work with a handful of the online content managers of both 7x7 and California Home and Design. I research for and write weekly posts such as Foodie Agendas on 7x7.com, create written content for submitted venues and DIYs for CaliforniaHomeDesign.com, and assist with updating the social media platforms such as Pinterest with both our content and curating other content onto our boards.
