I’m excited to contribute to the growth of journalism education, free speech understanding and my Whitworth and Spokane communities through service.

 

Conference Chair/Co-Chair

It offers a series of workshops on a variety of media production topics as well as continuing education for advisers.

Beyond the Pines, Whitworth’s student-run PR agency (2013-present)

Beyond the Pines is a student-run PR agency serving nonprofit organizations in the greater Spokane/eastern Washington area. The group now regularly serves 5-7 clients a semester, producing real-world PR initiatives for organizations that could not afford such support on their own.
