Communication Experience

On this page, you can see clips and examples of my communication experience.

Radio - Television - Newspaper - Blogs

Radio/TV

I have volunteered for PBS affiliate WUFT-TV, where I was a floor mananger. I volunteered for NPR affiliates 89.1 WUFT-FM and Classic 89.1 FM where I was a reporter. I have had editorial pieces and news articles published in the Alligator and Gainesville Sun, as well as various contributing articles to online blogs.

Newspaper

In high school, I was the editor of my school paper. I want to continue that experience while in college; I have had reporting articles published in the non-UF affiliated campus newspaper, The Alligator and the city's publication, The Gainesville Sun.

Internships

Claire and RJC Congressional Director Washington D.C. Washington D.C.

During the summer of 2011, I was a congressional intern at a conservative, political thinktank in Washington, D.C. While there, I attended House and Senate Foreign Affairs committee hearings and wrote briefs about what was debated on in those meetings. Additionally, I compiled research information about GOP presidential candidates for 2012 as well as issue tracking for the candidates. Here is an example of some of my work. If you search the month of July, you will see five of my blogs that I published.

During the summer of 2010, I was an intern for two representatives from the Floridian delegation in the House of Representatives in D.C. While there, I worked in the Cannon and Longworth House office buildings. In addition to attending committee meetings and researching voter trends, I gave tours of the Capitol itself. I would lead groups of 15-30 visitors through the Emancipation hall, old Senate and House Chambers, Rotunda and pass statues of distinguished individuals like Abraham Lincoln, President Roosevelt and state senators.

A professor even used my advice while teaching her new classes this semester. Currently, I am a marketing and communications intern for the Career Resource Center at UF. I assist in writing press releases, articles and compiling packets to media outlets. For more information about my on and off campus involvement experience, check out my resume.
