The liberal arts education I received at Pepperdine partnered with the experience I gained through internships has helped me succeed in the work place. I have been able to blend skills and expertise with well developed writing, public speaking, project management and critical thinking skills. My current role touches all aspects of marketing including digital strategy, production, creative, consumer engagement, communications, and PR for a line of business under the Walt Disney World Parks & Resorts segment. I have been immersed in complex business situations and have been forced to challenge traditional ways of thinking. I believe my undergraduate education at Pepperdine along with the exposure and experience I am getting at Disney will help me stand out when pursuing my MBA at top schools."
