Course Work

My classes at the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism enabled me to explore new ways of telling stories in collaboration with my fellow students and the surrounding community.

Advertising and Public Relations Writing

For Dr. Victoria LaPoe's Advertising and Public Relations Writing course in Fall 2019, I gained practical experience in public relations by taking on the Native American Journalists Association as a practice client. Dr. LaPoe is a lifelong member and former vice president of NAJA, an organization that serves and empowers Native journalists through programs and actions designed to enrich journalism and promote Native cultures. Besides gaining experience in news release, direct mail, bio and policy memo writing, I am now better equipped to write about diverse and marginalized communities.

    Online Journalism Fundamentals

    For Online Journalism Fundamentals with Dr. Hans Meyer in Fall 2018, I created a variety of projects that introduced me to the tools available for online-focused journalists. I worked in interactive media, 360 photo and video, podcasting and basic HTML and CSS.
