Society of Professional Journalists

As the president of Wayne State University's SPJ chapter, it was tough as we were in the middle of the pandemic. But with those obstacles, my goal was to help navigate younger students and show them the importance of networking in our field, whether in-person or virtually. Over the year, I hosted virtual chats with media professionals for our members. From smaller market producers to an Entertainment Live Tonight! host, we had a fair share of professionals who took their time to educate the future of journalism. 

WAYN Radio

WAYN Radio is a student ran organization. The show that I engineer and host is called "The Flower Hour." The Flower Hour covers the 1960s and 70s with some indie rock from the 1980s and '90s. Artists that heavily influence the show are bands like The Band, Herman Hermits, The Magnetic Fields, Jesus and Mary Chain, Donovan, and much more. The majority of the segments that are within the show are historical facts about the year whichever song was released on and facts of the artists at that time.

I worked with Liz directly when she was an engineer at WAYN Radio. She was very knowledgeable about how to run and operate a radio show, and she was always willing to go above and beyond for the station.

WHFR Radio

WHFR is a local college radio station that is a staple in the Dearborn community. The show that I host is called "No Boys A-Loud," which is two hours of strictly female artists. Artists that are played on the show range from Alice Coltrane to The Donnas to Eva Cassidy. The show was willed down to me and has been a show at WHFR for over ten years. Every on-air talent at WHFR produces and engineers their own show as well as research their content and scouts interviewees.

Kappa Delta Gamma Omicron

VP of Finance -- As VP of Finance, you are in charge of how smoothly the sorority runs. The duties that were a part of this position were finalizing a budget, informing the chapter on what their dues are for as well as discussing what each payment means for the chapter as a whole, sending in monthly report forms to nationals every month, working with our recruitment chair to make sure no one goes over budget, coding transactions, billing members, and so much more.

Public Relations Asssistant -- 

As Assistant PR for Kappa Delta Gamma Omicron, it is my duty to make sure that this social sorority has a social media presence and is known. Not only do we interact with each other in the chapter but also with other Kappa Delta chapters across the country and the rest of our community. Our two philanthropies are the Girl Scouts and Prevent Child Abuse of America, and we are passionate about them both. My goal, as well as the rest of my sisters, is to spread awareness of the two organizations and to have the general public understand the importance it is to give back to the community, especially to the children in our society since they are the future.

I advised Liz when she was the Vice President of Finance for Kappa Delta Sorority. She was detail oriented, self motivated, and always compassionate when working with others. Dealing with your peers finances can be a tough job and Liz took the job head on. She will do great things in her career as her time management, people skills, and willing to learn quickly are extremely impressive.

While both being in leadership positions in Kappa Delta, Liz was a person I could count on to help get things done no matter the circumstances. She has great leadership qualities and great people skills! She wouldn’t hesitate to help me or anyone else when needed and would always go beyond what was asked of her. She’s reliable, creative, and has comprehensive knowledge of many different areas and studies. Liz is someone I could go to when I needed help in things that she had no obligation in helping me with!
