In a short seven-year career as a writer and editor, I landed five regional press association journalist of the year titles, including consecutive annual first-place accolades from West Texas Press Association and two from North & East Texas Press Association.
Those awards were earned covering crime, government and crafting feature stories for community newspapers in Stephenville and Glen Rose, Texas.
Additional awards include first place newspaper association recognition for news writing, feature writing, column writing, community service and website management from the regional associations above, as well as the statewide Texas Press Association.
I have a degree in mass communication, with a specialization in print journalism and minors in photography and writing.
I also have an extensive customer service background, with a resume that includes stints with Century Telephone, Verizon Wireless and Wyndham Hotels and Resorts. That experience includes years in an in-bound call center setting working in sales, technical support, complaint resolution and retention.
I am currently working in a sales environment, as a contracted advertising account specialist with a local radio station.
I am ready to put my communication skills, customer service experience and attention to detail to work for you and your organization.
