Three words to describe me? Creative, outgoing, and determined.
I graduated in the summer of 2012 with a degree in Communication, concentrating on public relations. I began my Master’s Degree in Communications at The University of Akron two weeks after my undergraduate degree, a decision I do not regret. Communication fascinates me: the way others interact, the way we communicate our thoughts and feelings, and how our environment shapes that communication. Because of this and a love for social media, I have focused quite a bit of my research on how to effectively measure and implement public relations and social media efforts.
I stay current with the latest trends and technologies in PR social media by following a slew of blogs and companies who regularly post new ideas and trends emerging in the field. I also participate regularly in social media Twitter chats: #RaganSocial and #TheSMGirl being my favorite. Exchanging thoughts and ideas with other professionals is exciting to me, as I’m a firm believer in learning something new from everyone I meet.
As I said before, learning the social landscape is a passion of mine. Because of this, I use and keep up-to-date with various social channels. Connect with me, let’s talk social media!
