About Maddie

Hi! I’m a senior at the University of North Texas. I am studying public relations with a minor in marketing, and will graduate in Spring 2017.

While at North Texas, I spent my first two years interning at North Texas Athletics, where I worked with the media relations department. In my second year, I served as the media contact for the Cross Country and Track and Field teams, where I handled all social media accounts, wrote press releases and bios, reported to conference and nominated athletes for awards, and communicated with all media. At this job, I learned how to report and read statistics, write press releases quickly with accuracy, how to communicate with press to get athletes covered in local and school papers. I managed social media accounts and communicated directly with coaches about what would make the teams look best.

In August 2015, I transitioned to a different department at UNT. I now serve as a Marketing Assistant for the UNT University Union. At this job, I am allowed to be my most creative, and I have a great time. Our content is edgy but relevant, and our hard work has paid off! The Union is now the third most popular UNT account on most social media platforms. At the Union, I help manage social media platforms, run a WordPress blog, and help with large-scale marketing campaigns and campus-wide events. It’s a fun, creative space filled with creative people. I am currently interested in internships for the spring 2017 semester. I will be looking for internship positions in similar creative spaces, in addition to other opportunities. If you are interested in getting in contact with me about a potential internship opportunity, or just want to chat, contact me.
