I had the pleasure of working at the Reves Center for International Studies at the College of William & Mary. As the Communications Associate there, I oversaw all communications regarding international affairs and international studies for the Reves Center. I performed various roles including webmaster, writer, editor, public relations manager and social media director. I also directed the development and production of varied print and digital media, including a biannual magazine, and implemented strategic marketing and communications plans. Additionally, I held was helping coordinate and support internationally focused events, programs and initiatives throughout the university community and with its partners, such as the Presidential Precinct and the Institute for the Theory and Practice of International Relations.
Here is a sample of my work at the College of William & Mary.
As the editor for the Spring 2014 and Fall 2014 issues, I curated all of the content and managed the production and distribution of this biannual magazine. The stories include internationally focused news and features, and the 2014 issues specifically highlighted a White House program, the Young African Leaders Initiative, which William & Mary was selected to become a part of in 2014 in conjunction with the Presidential Precinct consortium.
This feature on the Reves Center was the cover story for the Winter 2013 issue of the William & Mary Alumni Magazine, and highlights the 25 years of globalization work that the Reves Center has accomplished though its Global Education Office, International Students and Scholars Programs, and other Global Engagement efforts.
I was privileged to partake in one of the Armed Services Art Partnerships first Veteran Writing Workshops held at the College of William & Mary. Thanks to ASAP, I published and performed a short piece, Among the Scarred, about my military experience.
Since then, ASAP has grown to include music and comedy classes for veterans and military families. Their mission is to help these individuals thrive in their communities through arts classes and performances.
