I just graduated from the University of Oregon with a BS in Business Administration, concentration in Marketing and minor in Communication Studies.  I am originally from the Bay Area but going to school in Oregon has made me fall in love with the state and things like seasons, long summer days and the beautiful green (not gold) surroundings!

I’m in Portland for 6 weeks this summer for an amazing opportunity, an internship through the Portland Advertising Federation (PAF) called COLABORATORY.  A unique program where 10 interns spend 2 weeks at 3 different marketing/advertising agencies  and get to learn the ropes of  each individual shop.  Not only do the interns get a feel for what an agency setting is like but they are divided into 2 teams who compete with each other to pitch a marketing/pr campaign to a local client.

Along with the move up to Portland, the internship, meeting new friends, making connections and going on adventures, I am starting a blog to track and share (with whoever wants to listen) my experiences in Portland.  Keep in mind this is my first blog and that writing this blog is just going to be one of many firsts for the summer!
