And so it begins.

Welcome to Practically a Pro!

I’m Ashley, your resident *future* public relations maven. Currently, I am a student at the University of Oregon. As I enter my senior year I look fondly back on the time I have spent as a student and realize how fast it has all gone. And boy is it gone.

I am entering an extremely new point in my life as I begin a communications internship with a major retail company and as I work as an Account Executive at an on-campus public relations firm. With this blog, I hope to give advice and tell stories, all drawing from my mistakes and my successes during this time of change.

I know how difficult it is to become an adult and realize all of the new responsibilities that come with it. So, I want to make it easier for others going through the same thing. Consider me a guinea pig of sorts. I will be going out into the professional world while still being a student, and I will report back here and let you know how it goes. Please, learn from my mistakes! But most importantly, connect with me! Below I have links to all of my social media. I encourage you to follow along on the blog and share your experiences with me via comments on the blog and via social media. Let’s help each other out and learn something!

    Ashley, your blog is amazing. It is very tactful and I like the layout to go with that very organized and useful theme. I feel like I am going to a professional website for PR advice for sure. I think that it is very purposefully written. The only suggestion I would have is maybe add a few more narrative tidbits about your experience entering the PR world. Although, I can see that each post kinda shows your journey with how much you learned.
