Eat, sleep and breathe all things communication having earned my M.S. in Corporate and Professional Communication from Radford University for a higher knowledge in PR, Marketing, and Advertising strategy and best practices. Currently, I work closely with organizations to identify and understand IT needs to match them with the right software solutions as an Account Executive with Higher Logic.
Previously, I provided marketing and advertising solutions as Marketing Consultant at Summerville Communications to SMB in the greater Charleston, SC area.
I'm a two-time award winning PR recipient (PRSA Gold Summit Awards) for outstanding student portfolios in planning, managing, and implementing various Marketing and Social Media campaigns and a former Professor of Record for Communication courses at Radford University exemplifying exceptional oral, written, and interpersonal communication skills.
My background is Video Production with a B.A. in Media Arts and Design, Digital Video and Cinema Studies concentration from James Madison University. Screenplays, directing, filming, editing and producing creative content are a passion.
Public Relations, Marketing, Advertising, Journalism and helping businesses understand the ever-changing digital world we live in are what drive me. Check out my blog at http://mcconnellls.wordpress.com/
