About

Yooo Adrienne… that’s my name! I am a Hoosier, born and raised. It’s somewhat sad to say that I am no longer a college student. As of May 9th, 2009, I am officially an alumnus of Butler University having graduated with a degree in Journalism concentrating on PR and Advertising and a minor in Visual Arts.  My interests are diversified and intriguing. I couldn’t go a day without music and the people closest to me, especially my family. I enjoy traveling to new places, meeting new people, and eating great food. I am fascinated by people and culture, so naturally my bucket list includes at least one visit to every country. A true go-getter, I love adventures big and small. Anything outdoors and you can count me in! Bike rides, kayaking and water rafting are a few of my favorites.

I studied abroad in Rome, Italy, living in a small apartment near the Vatican. I spent my time exploring the city, learning about history, art and architecture of Ancient Rome, taking Renaissance and Baroque courses. A typical day consisted of a trip to the Piazza del Popolo (my favorite place in Rome), another to the Villa Borghese and dinner at Da Buffeto. Weekends were spent on a train or airplane bouncing around from country to country.

After graduation I was extremely fortunate to get a job at Dittoe PR as a result of my eight month internship. I recently took on the role of Account Executive at Y&L PR, a division of Young & Laramore. I have a tremendous amount of interest in PR, advertising, media relations and the arts. As a newbie, I have come to recognize the significance of social media to express creativity and make beneficial connections. I thrive on creativity and teamwork and hope to one day work in each area of public relations. I have a strong interest in the travel and tourism industry along with media relations and package design. With the right attitude and motivation, anything is possible. Life is a beautiful thing, so remember “it’s the journey, not the destination.”
