How are you using the skills that you learned at Moody in your current role?
Moody taught me how to simultaneously think on my feet, as well as think outside of the box. As a dual major in the honors program, I was able to hone in my skills throughout various curriculum and organizations that strengthened my versatility and deliverability as a creative. The fast pace of writing and reporting from my journalism degree, the visual and emotional intelligence of directing a short film from my RTF degree, the painstaking research and review from my Moody Honors capstone projects – all of these projects gave me invaluable insight into creating memorable and meaningful content for a living!
What is next for you?
After starting out in a full-time capacity as a Brand Strategy & Marketing and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Coordinator, I was recently promoted to Creative Associate, where I have the ability to spearhead the creative direction of our campaigns to support a wide variety of our shows across digital, print, events, awards, and social media efforts. My team also works directly with the producers and creators of our shows to ensure the strategy for a campaign is thoroughly and innovatively executed.
The studio currently has over 130 active shows across all major networks and streaming platforms, and I’ve had the amazing opportunity to work on some incredible current shows like the Emmy® Award-winning Hacks and Russian Doll, Never Have I Ever, The Umbrella Academy, Bel-Air, Candy, Chucky, Ted, the Psych franchise and more, while also touching on some iconic legacy shows like The Good Place, The Office, Parks and Recreation, and Late Night shows.
Were you involved in student orgs on campus?
During the course of my college career, I was the Editor-in-Chief of Afterglow ATX, the Buzz Editor at ORANGE Magazine, a Writing Director at Silk Club ATX, a Production Assistant at TSTV’s Sneak Peek and a Staff Writer & Model at Spark Magazine. I was also a proud Texas Lasso and member of The Broccoli Project!
