When I first decided to major in Public Relations, I planned on having more of a political focus. I was born and raised in East Boston, MA and come from a very political community and family. However, during the Fall semester of my Senior Year, I enrolled in Non-Profit PR. Our final project was to write up a plan for an American Cancer Society Relay for Life event in our hometown. After researching ACS for this project, I was hooked! I loved everything the organization stood for and I still do.
I currently reside in Danvers, MA and have a 3-year old daughter."
