My name is Jessica Overton and I am a senior at the University of Oregon majoring in public relations and minoring in English. When I graduate in June of this year, I aspire to work for a non-profit organization that helps positively improve the lives of others.
This past summer, I had a marketing internship with Where Traveler San Francisco, a travel company that creates monthly magazines and yearly guest books for visitors staying at four and five-star hotels throughout the Bay Area. I wrote and copyedited for the July, August and September issues of the magazine, as well as for the company’s 2013 guest book. I also worked with a local nonprofit organization, SAIL Housing, during my 2013 winter and spring quarters at the University of Oregon. I researched and introduced strategic media plans to help strengthen the organization’s social media presence.
I strive to be an active part of my community and enjoy confronting, and solving, each challenge that comes my way, both in life and my career.
