My name is Ashley O’Looney. I am a soon-to-be graduate of California State University, Chico. My major area of study is in journalism/public relations with a minor in psychology. I’ve had various internships that have supplied me with a wide array of knowledge and experience that I am able to apply towards my goal of becoming a marketing and PR practitioner. But you could have learned all of that based off my resume. What you wouldn’t have learned by reviewing my resume is my passion for the profession. Starting back in my high school pep rallies and in student council as the Rally Commissioner, I knew how much I loved the creativity and services I provided for my school. Then continuing into my college years and interships I only grew to love it more. It was the craving for that lifestyle of connecting with people through creativity that told me that marketing and public relations was a perfect fit for me, and I’ve followed that dream ever since. To this day that passion hasn’t diminished but only transformed into a new drive for something that can only be described as a hunger to succeed in this industry and make my dream into a reality. When I’m not taking part in my day-to-day balancing act, you can find me out and about with my Australian Shepherd named Bear. We like to break free of the hustle by hiking, swimming, running and sometimes just lounging around outside. Overall, there is never a dull moment, and that’s exactly how I like it and exactly the environment that I thrive in.
