I am a full-time student, full time marketer and part time farmer working on my Master’s degree in Integrated Marketing Communications at West Virginia University. Born in Virginia and having lived in Richmond, VA most of my life, I decided to attend Virginia Commonwealth University for my Bachelors in Mass Communications with a concentration in Strategic Advertising.
From the moment I started my first Mass Communications class I was hooked. It allowed me to think creatively yet still work in the business world. Since I have graduated, many things have changed including the ever evolving word of emerging media in the marketplace. Though this blog is essentially for my emerging media class I have every intention of writing long after the class is complete as I am excited to have finally started a blog where I can discuss marketing and the current trends we are witnessing today.
Please feel free to chime in, agree with me, disagree with me and share your thoughts on emerging media and marketing openly.
A little about me outside of marketing…I am 29 years old and now live on a farm in Natchitoches, LA. I love animals, fishing, the beach, the mountains and being outdoors in general. I hope to eventually be able to travel a little more after I have completed school as I love visiting new places, meeting new people and learning about new cultures.
