Thank you for visiting my WordPress blog and professional website. My name is Alexandra Gresick, and I am a proud graduate of Maryville University with a Master of Arts in Strategic Communication and Leadership (May 2015) and a Bachelor of Arts with concentrations in Strategic Communication and Contemporary Journalism (May 2013).
My career interests include Health Communication, Non-profit Communication, Higher Education, and Marketing/Communications. I have strong writing and editing skills, in addition to effective interpersonal communication skills and a keen sense of creativity.
I had a great experience this past year in the Integrated Marketing and Communications department at Maryville University as a graduate assistant that really enhanced my passion for higher education marketing and communications. I was also fortunate to intern at St. Luke’s Hospital for a year, from June 2012 until May 2013 in the Marketing and Communications department. Interning at St. Luke’s was a wonderful, enriching experience that helped acquaint me with working in a professional environment and oriented me to the exciting industry of Health Communication and Marketing, another passion and interest area of mine.
I also was a virtual marketing intern with VolunTEEN Nation during the summer of 2012. VolunTEEN Nation is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting teen volunteerism. In addition to my internship experiences, I also have over four years of experience in pharmacy, health, beauty, and wellness as a sales associate at a large scale retailer.
My creative interests include: music, writing, blogging, reading, learning about history, watching movies, and doing art projects. For fun, I like to explore different parts of St. Louis, try different types of food, go to see live music and other talent performances, watch independent and foreign films, and visit museums. I am passionate about music, art, history, education, health and wellness, and journalism.
Please enjoy browsing my WordPress website and blog. I have posted my resume, in addition to various writing samples.
