The Cleveland Clinic is a surprising venue for the dispensing of herbs, a practice that has yet to make inroads in the U.S. because of a lack of evidence they are effective.

Social media forces companies to change their marketing strategies or be left behind.
Thank you for the interview +ABC Australia 

From Ashely Hall, "The ubiquity of social media has done a lot to disrupt the advertising and marketing industries. It allows companies to talk one on one to potential consumers, regardless of where they live in the world. But if companies don't get the message right they risk alienating shrewd media consumers."

Business reporter Alicia Barry has the story." Winning the hearts of consumers is a delicate art on the noisy canvas of social media. An irreverent YouTube video from a well-known fast food giant resonates with its audience."

Story
Tagline
Business Marketing Student at the University of Northern Colorado. I am interested in hospital marketing.
Introduction
My Background:   

   I am a business marketing student at the University of Northern Colorado. I am interested in hospital marketing. I came across the passion for healthcare during my high school volunteer experiences. 

    During my first years of college I was not really sure what role I wanted play in the healthcare system. During my sophomore year at the University of Northern Colorado I took a course, Foundation of Business Thought. In this class we were introduced to concepts such as Adam Smith's philosophy of the invisible hand, Andrew Carnegie's opinion of  the benefits of competition and so much more. After taking this course I was inspired by the business world. With this newfound passion for business I was still interested in a career in healthcare. 

Leadership experience:
 
   During my experience at the University of Northern Colorado I was very involved in Greek Life. I was elected by my chapter to serve on the Executive Council as Vice President of Finance. This position taught me valuable leadership, communication and financial skills. I was later elected, President of Sigma Kappa. This was a wonderful opportunity to learn time management, delegation, and public speaking skills. I was honored to receive the 'Chapter President of the Year' award from the University of Northern Colorado Panhellenic council.  

Marketing Research:

     During college I have taken three courses in statistics and a Marketing Research class. In this class we learned about gathering primary and secondary information, surveying techniques, and data analysis. 


Study abroad experience: 

     My cover photo is a picture of Old Town Vilnius, Lithuania. I had the opportunity to study abroad during the summer of 2013 at ISM University of Management and Economics.  After my study abroad experience in Vilnius Lithuania, I became very interested in different global marketing strategies. One of my favorite things to do while studying abroad was to go into grocery stores and observe the differences between European products and products from home in the United States. 
    
   I loved getting to know the students in my class while I was studying abroad. In my program there were students from all over the world. I quickly learned that communication and work ethic between different cultures can be very different. I am very grateful that had this opportunity because it taught me valuable communication skills. 
       
     After studying abroad I began to see my country differently, and witness how some people view the United States. I was captivated by how large the world is and I continue to be inspired by other cultures. 
   
Projects:

University of Colorado Health March 2014

In the Spring of 2014 I worked on a project for University of Colorado Health with other students from the business school. Our challenge was to develop a marketing plan/ campaign to encourage people to download and use their app using a variety of mediums



Favorite Quotes: 

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain 


"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" - Nelson Mandela


" I didn't always know what I wanted to do, but I knew the type of woman I wanted to be" - Diane von Furstenberg 


"Be yourself, everyone else is already taken" - Oscar Wilde


"If there is no passion in your life, then have you really lived? Find your passion, whatever it may be. Become it, and let it become you and you will find great things happen FOR you, TO you and BECAUSE of you.” ~ T. Alan Armstrong via Blake Mycoskie
