QSI Group samples
The majority of my work with QSI Group consists of account and project management for web design projects from concept to launch, technical support, digital content strategy, and social media strategy, content development and execution.
As a strategic communications graduate student at UNT's Mayborn School of Journalism, I learned how to write comprehensive communications plans for a variety of different industries, including a telecommunications company specializing in network technology. I also analyzed the social media practices of the American Heart Association and was able to put some of my recommendations into practice during my internship with AHA. My best project was for a major financial institution, but I cannot post my work or list that company at this time due to a non-disclosure agreement.
