Schaumburg Park District
My very first internship and one of my first full-time jobs was at the Schaumburg Park District, a suburban parks and recreation agency that delivers year-round, versatile leisure opportunities through enriching programs, quality facilities and environmental stewardship. As the communications coordinator, I had a variety of responsibilities that covered all areas of marketing communications.
Website Redesign and Content Management
At Schaumburg Park District, I acted as project manager for the relaunch of the award-winning ParkFun.com and did all daily updates to the website. I also oversaw the development and design of the District’s mobile application and site.
I developed, wrote and designed the District's monthly staff print newsletter and then adapted it for the intranet.
Print and Digital Design
In my role, I assisted with print, digital screen and web design.

I discovered my passion for photography while working at Schaumburg Park District. I took photos daily of parks, facilities, programs and special events. My photos are used throughout the District on flyers, brochures, websites, press releases, event listings and other promotional materials. These are some nature photos I took at Spring Valley and Schaumburg Golf Club.
