Summary

I always seek new opportunities to learn about the world around and beyond myself through media, literature, and relationships with diverse groups of people. What I have learned through my personal research and by surrounding myself with wiser and more experienced persons has helped make me a well-rounded individual capable of taking on a variety of tasks that require critical thinking, dedication, and decisiveness to complete.
The emergence of integrated marketing communications has redefined how marketing, advertising, and public relations professionals foster the two-way communication between client and public. Our work has to go beyond being creative and our messages cannot be one-size-fits-all. We need to be well researched, engaged, flexible, honest, and relevant to deliver the quality of services required by clients and their publics.
