Welcome to Laura Gorham's Online Portfolio
I am a first year Master's student studying Agricultural Education and Communication at the University of Florida. The Agricultural Communication specialization will prepare me for a career dealing with agriculture and agribusiness related to public value, positioning, communications and marketing. My master's project will focus on creating an advertising campaign for an agricultural firm.
I am currently working as a Graduate Assistant within the department, developing marketing materials and how to training modules and toolkits for Dr. Ricky Telg. In addition, I assist Dr. Linda Perry in the teaching of AEC 3033, Research and Business Writing in Agricultural and Life Sciences. I have, also, worked as a teaching assistant for the Food and Resource Economics department assisting in both AEB 3133, Principles of Agribusiness Management, and AEB 3341, Selling Strategically.
I am currently involved in two clubs within the department. I am the social media director for the Agricultural Education and Communication Graduate Student Association (AECGSA) and manage the website and social media pages for the club. I am, also, a member for Agricultural Communicators and Leaders of Tomorrow (ACLT). Through my Master's program and my experiences, I hope to gain new skills that will help me find a job in Public Relations for the Agricultural industry.
