Day Trippin’: Lake Tahoe

    Sometimes you just need to get out of town, and that is one of my favorite things about living in Sacramento! It is a cliche that Sacramento is two hours away from anywhere you want to be and it is true. I love to take day trips to the coast and to the…

This is how good it feels to graduate

On May 20th of 2017 I walked across the stage at the brand new Golden1 Center with my three closest friends from college. One of which now lives in San Diego, one is my roommate and one is the friend we joke about being our third roommate! The ceremony went by in a blur. The…

Work Wear: Dressing Professionally – With Style

As I am about to graduate college I am preparing for a transition in wardrobe. While my favorite outfit is comfy jeans, sandals or converse and a cute t-shirt or tank that go-to is more like a do-not-go-to in work wear. Learning to dress the part for work has come to me through my experience…

How to: Not go crazy after you bring home a puppy.

Spring is the season of new growth, cleaning out your home, starting new tasks and setting personal goals. I myself have gotten a puppy, moved into a new apartment, planted a balcony garden and brought home a new puppy. Dexter will be 12 weeks old soon, he was born on January 17, 2017 and is…

A Lesson in Beer from a Beer-tender

The reason I say beer-tender and not bartender is simple. I don’t, for the the life of me, know how to make mixed drinks with more than two ingredients. What I do know is a few things about which beers taste hoppy, the classifications of Belgian style ales, and the fact that not all dark…

So…I’m getting a puppy!

Madi, aren’t you busy enough? Yes. Yes I am. But I also have the time, money, and desire to bring a little fur baby into my family and I made the decision to get a puppy. I have wanted a Pembroke Welsh Corgi since I was in the 8th grade. I love their little legs…

What does 2017 look like for a soon-to-be college graduate?

Hi! It certainly has been a while since my last post, I hope that if you are reading this your holidays were filled with food and laughs, your best friends and dearest family members.

Founder’s Day 2016

The past two ¬†weeks have been a bit of a whirl wind! Today I finally have a moment to write about a beautiful event I coordinated with several members of my department to celebrate the 142nd birthday of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority. Our event took place on November 13th at the Haggin Oaks Pavilion in…

Sunday Brunch & ACS Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Today I had the pleasure of attending the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. I have attended and participated in this walk for three consecutive years and each time I come home with a full heart! This time I came home with a full belly too. Our day began at 6:45 AM…

PRSA New Pros | PRSSA – Career Day

Yesterday I had the privilege of sitting down with CEO’s, executives, and managers from Lucas Public Affairs, Insight Public Relations, Mering Carson, and the Sacramento Rivercats. As a graduating senior I found immense value in attending Career Day with members of my PRSSA Chapter and new professionals of the PRSA Chapter. Our first stop of…

First Week of Senior Year? Check!

#StingersUp! I’m back on campus at Sacramento State with 18 units to juggle, continuing my internship with FSB Core Strategies, working two jobs, and still making time to enjoy my senior year of college. At first I was highly stressed about working nearly full time, taking more than a full load of college courses, and…

Fall 2016 Recruitment Photo & Video Shoot – Gamma Phi Beta

The only thing I can compare to my love for my chapter is the process that is sorority recruitment. Not only will my chapter welcome new members, but the entirety of Sacramento State’s Greek community will be welcoming in additional¬†philanthropists, attendees to this year’s volunteer services, and individuals that will contribute greatness to a network…
