Catholic Campus Ministries

What I did

I was on the Communications Committee for Catholic Campus Ministries. I help the ministry create posters, fliers, stickers, and cards to help spread the word about any upcoming events. This ranges from social gatherings, to guest speakers, to promoting the ministry using visuals.

I designed the 2018 ministry t-shirt, which was handed out to parents and students registered for Catholic Campus Ministries. It was super exciting to see my design being worn everyday by people on campus!

See my Graphic Section for some of my other work with Catholic Campus Ministries!

In addition, I redesigned the entire JMU Catholic Campus Ministries Website via eCatholic (a content management system).

This project entailed creating a site map, wireframes, rearranging written content, finding new images taken by our students along with free stock photos, creating buttons, a favicon, and social media icons for the site. I created branding guidelines to follow and used my HTML and CSS skills to style the site accordingly. The logo was also designed by me and was the 2018 – 2019 CCM t-shirt design for this year. Everything seen on the site, except for the written content, was created by me.

Proudly Assisting & Welcoming Students

What I did

I was the secretary and recruitment chair for PAWS, through the Office of Admissions. I managed the general member roster, sent email updates once every week, communicated permanent information to the advisory council and general body, and recruited new members for the organization.

redesigned the PAWS logo for the organization to make it look more professional. The new logo was printed on polos and quarter-zip sweatshirts. The apparel was given to our volunteers to wear during JMU’s Large Visitation Days, Open Houses, Choices, and Wednesday’s at Madison.

What is PAWS?

PAWS is a group of JMU students who volunteer with the Office of Admissions throughout the year. The campus visit plays an essential role for prospective students and contributes to the perceptions that are created about our campus. We as students and PAWS members are committed to providing visiting families with information to create a more engaged, personal visit to campus. We believe that everyone visiting JMU should have the best experience possible. Go Dukes!

JMYOU Student Mentor

What I did

I was a student mentor on James Madison Universitiy’s Platform, JMYou. I generated discussion topics, answered questions, and messaged prospective and admitted students about JMU.

What is JMYou?

JMYou is a platform for prospective and admitted students to find out more information about James Madison University. This platform articulates pertinent information about what to expect, what to bring, and gives prospective and admitted students a chance to become a part of the community even before they arrive. The student mentors strive to tell students about what to expect, what college life can be like, and we are here to help them through this life changing transition. The platform also gives students a chance to read articles and message student mentors about JMU!

Girl Scout Gold Award Recipient

I received my Girl Scout Gold Award my Senior year of High School in 2015. At a young age I strived to make an impact in my community and took initiative by educating underprivileged children about the performing arts since they did not have much exposure to it prior.

For the project, which consisted of over 80 hours of community service, I choreographed songs and taught vocals at a dance camp for 2 months. The goal was to inspire these children to continue to partake in the performing arts when they got older.
