Welcome to my blog! I am using this blog to explore the world of crisis communications. You can expect to find blogs on crisis, mainly within the sports world, but I also will explore crisis communications in the music industry, and share tips and tricks I have collected along the way.
Because I have lived in Oregon my entire life I have found a passion for University of Oregon athletics and college sports in general. For as long as I can remember I have looked forward to watching Oregon Football games – through good and bad seasons. More recently, in the last five years or so, I have developed a passion for Oregon Men’s Basketball as well. The competitive, close-knit atmosphere around Oregon Athletics is what has kept me around for all these years, and I also should give credit to The Duck because he is a great mascot. He brings an incredible amount of energy to even the worst games! I am excited to move forward by looking into how they keep their cool when a crisis hits.
Next, who doesn’t love music? Music is relatable and can give us something to basically bookmark a memory with. I personally enjoy country music as well as a good current hits playlist off Spotify. Like many people today, if you ride in the car with me you should expect a wide variety of music to be played. Working in the music industry wasn’t even on my radar until recently when a friend started a group on campus that promotes music industry jobs, and since then I have been hooked! Crisis communications within this industry would be one that keeps me on my toes and excited to show up at work every morning.
Also as a current student at the University of Oregon I am learning new tips and tricks everyday, and I think that this will be a good place to form my thoughts and share my opinions while exploring the crisis communications profession. I look forward to expanding my knowledge and interacting with other bloggers in the profession!
