I am a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) with a Bachelor’s in English, concentrating in Professional Writing, and double minors in Communication and Spanish. I am an alum of Her Campus at UIC, where I served as a writer, Co-Campus Correspondent, and Editor-in-Chief. Feel free to take a look at all of the articles I have written for Her Campus thus far. At the National level, I was a Chapter Advisor for Her Campus where I advised 10 chapters across the nation. Lastly, I am certified by Hootsuite on Social Marketing.

Aside from my passion for writing and technology, I also love sales and working with people because it enables me to strengthen interpersonal communication skills while building stronger connections. Now that I have graduated, I am looking for my next opportunity.
