My name is Aubree West, I am 23 years young and call Los Angeles, California home.
I have a passion for all things news and buzz worthy, PR, communications, marketing, and social media.
After finishing my Bachelors at Soka University of America in beautiful southern Orange County. I slightly panicked (like most college graduates) but fortunately I had options: a full time job and acceptance to grad school. After a lot of deliberation and a lot of mixed advice from my loved ones I decided on grad school and moved myself across the world to Leeds, England.
I am now in the final stretch of finishing my master’s program in Public Relations and Strategic Communications at Leeds Beckett University. The practical side of this course allowed me to hone my PR skills and work with people from all over the world. I also got to learn new skills like InDesign and Photoshop. While studying I got the opportunity to work for an awesome small B2B PR agency, Quest PR as their PR Assistant. My responsibilities ranged from creating content for blogs, social media, and feature articles to generating client coverage and creating media databases to monitoring and managing client coverage files. This experience has no doubt prepared me for my next position and step in my career.
When I am not “adulting,” I enjoy: reading, writing, playing soccer, spending time with my family and friends, and traveling.
My travel bug started in 2012 when I went to Brazil and I haven’t been able to get rid of it since. I love being in new places, experiencing new cultures, and feeling totally lost. To date: I have traveled to over 20 countries and have some upcoming trips planned this summer! I have lived in 3 different places now: Los Angeles, Barcelona, and Leeds.
This blog will share my business lady life in the always changing world of PR, my personal life, and my adventures as a nomad!
As my time in Leeds is ending, I will be moving back to sunny LA and am looking for new professional opportunities.
