Class of 2018
What do you love about your current position?
Problem-solving every day. In the world of crisis comms no two days look the same and the unexpected scenarios you jump into are the most stimulating part of my job.
How are you using the skills that you learned at Moody in your current role?
At Moody, you get to dabble in different disciplines of comms while simultaneously having the option to focus on a specialty (i.e. Texas Creative/Media, RTF, etc.). The ability to bounce between being a generalist and specialist is an extremely helpful skill, especially in communications, and it's a skill that's helped me continue to grow in my career.
What are some favorite projects you've worked on in your role?
I'm very new to my latest role (3 weeks in!) and slowly ramping up. What I can share is that I'm most looking forward to helping strengthen the crisis communications strategy across Expedia Group's suite of brands (which includes brands such as Expedia.com, Vrbo & Hotels.com).
Were you involved in student orgs on campus?
Yes. In college, I thought I wanted to be an event planner, which led me to join Texas Belles. I was also a part of Texas PRSSA, which I consider a rite of passage if you're a PR major at Moody.
You don't need to have everything figured out before graduation. The pieces of career-oriented experience I collected during my time at Moody seemed more like a scatter plot but looking back, they were all necessary steps that led me to exactly where I am today.
