My name is Courtney Mains. I am a student at the University of Oregon, pursuing a major in public relations and a minor in multimedia. I am expecting to graduate in June 2016 and am looking to delve into a career in sports or consumer PR. I am passionate about athletics, philanthropy and community and hope to incorporate these aspects of my life into my career as a public relations professional.
I am currently a communications intern for the University of Oregon Athletic Department. In this position I assist with media relations, write feature articles for the women’s basketball team and help facilitate news conferences.
My professional experience also includes serving as an Allen Hall Public Relations account executive on the Eugene Education Foundation team and starting a chapter of the Association of Women in Sports Media at the University of Oregon.
