Work Experience

At LDS Living, I edit for both the magazine and website articles. I also revamped the weekly FHE lessons—which included writing completely new lesson plans—to incorporate Come, Follow Me curriculum. While at this internship, I took the initiative to write several of my own articles, one of which received over 60,000 views and trended for several days on the site.

At Hopesquad (also known as Hope4Utah), I assisted the team in editing and writing the organization’s suicide prevention curriculum. I was also tasked with designing Greg Hudnall’s suicide prevention website, as well as filling the website with written and edited content. I created marketing materials including brochures and posters and assist the team in any other design or editing needs that may arise.
