Hello! So, first the basics: My name is Mariah, I am 26 and a proud graduate of University of Oregon’s School of Journalism and Communication. Living in Eugene during some of the most significant years of my life instilled an obnoxious, fanatical admiration for Duck Football. Coming from Seattle and having a UW professor and multiple graduates in the family makes football season a little intense, but it helps that my two older brothers are also Oregon Alumni, and we are shameless in our Yell-O pride. GO Ducks!
Ok, so enough about the Ducks, I swear that I have a life beyond football season. I love to people watch, ride my bike, drink coffee as well as support local businesses like Ninkasi, Full Sail, Deschutes, Elysian, Rouge…you get the drift. I call Hood River, Seattle, Tacoma, Portland and Eugene my home, because they all have been at one point in my 26 years of existence.
I am as passionate about my work as I am about how I impact, influence my community. Originally, I focused this blog on topics within public relations, but post graduation I want to expand my topics, stay focused on the industry, but remove some of the limitations and see where it leads.
Thanks for reading!
