Hi all – my name is Shelby Nelson. I’m energized and excited to join the public relations world in the spring of 2015.
Currently, I’m finishing up my degree at the University of Oregon and a part of Allen Hall PR (a student-ran agency), UO’s Public Relations Student Society of America and a public relations volunteer for Susan G. Komen. Through my internships and volunteer work I have developed a specific passion for events and lifestyle PR and I hope to have a career in at least one of these areas. I was born and raised in Oregon and plan to stay in the Portland area unless, a dream job takes me elsewhere.
A few random facts about myself… I love coffee (especially Starbucks), all things floral, beauty, shopping and being active! I have a pug named Annie that lives with my family in Portland that I visit very often. I’m also a public relations peer mentor and a project manager on an external relations committee, both through UO’s Public Relations Student Society of America.
