Hi, I'm Van.

Jill-of-all-trades, media fanatic, and Oxford Comma advocate.

I am a graduate from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) with a Master of Arts degree in journalism and media. I relocated to the Sunshine State to explore different opportunities (and work on my tan), but I am always interested in a new adventure.

During my time at UGA, I honed my interests in media relations and content creation with internships with Athensmade, Better Georgia, the Georgia Department of Economic Development, and various projects within the community. Through my assistantship at the university, I was responsible for almost one thousand undergraduate students (Introduction to Public Relations) and acted as the lead researcher for a Brazilian PR film through a university partnership. My work has been featured in Buzzfeed, Explore Georgia, and a variety of literary journals.
