I am the communications coordinator for St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Parish in Dubuque, Iowa. My work entails managing the parish’s online presence through social media and the parish website. I am also tasked with thinking of new ways to engage people and to encourage them to attend Mass at SJTW. I do graphic design work for the parish which includes graphics for social media, the parish newsletter and Sunday bulletin, and the slides that appear on the screens during weekend Masses.
I am a graduate of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on the strategic communications track. I studied campaign planning in addition to graphic design and logo design.
During college, I did communications and design work with Colleges Against Cancer and Relay For Life of UW-Madison, where I served as Marketing Director. I ran the social media accounts for CAC and designed graphics to help our posts attract more views.
As director, I also led the marketing committee. This required a great deal of organization and planning as I worked to make sure we had an integrated marketing approach and presented a unified and effective message across multiple media.
