Alfred Fleishman Diversity Fellow

The fellowship is a six to 12 month rotational program with benefits that allows participants to interact directly with clients and senior-level leaders, receive mentorship under senior leadership, and gain experience in different practice groups within the organization. Working within the Corporate and Health and Wellness, and Public Affairs account teams, I have gained experience in media relations (with successful placements with print and broadcast outlets), as well as reputation and issues management, among other areas of focus in the industry through a variety of projects that have collectively, successfully prepared me for the next step toward a full-time career in public relations.

Self Employed

Freelance Journalist

I independently compose news stories, editorial pieces, and inspirational thought on subjects of interest on my blog sites. Both of my sites are vastly different in their style of composure, as well as subject material. However, they are uniquely and collectively a positive reflection of my likes, my inspirations, and my complete potential as a writer. I have also written internal communications materials for the Corrections Corporation of America and have served as an official blogger for the college at which I worked. From June to July 2011, I wrote and researched for a major timeline, commemorating St. Louis Community College's 50th Anniversary.
