Meet Our Advent10n NSAC Chair

I first heard about AAF my senior year of college at LSUS. We were told about a student advertising competition (NSAC) that would look great on a resume and could potentially help with finding work after college. As someone who was getting ready to graduate and had no idea how to begin looking for a job, this club sounded perfect. A few students, with the help of our professor Allen Garcie, started the student chapter of AAF at LSUS, where I was also fortunate enough to be elected President. We worked for months and learned much from competing in this competition, but when it was over, I thought that my stint with AAF was over.

A few weeks later I was contacted by Erin Smith, to design a magnet for the AAF that would include a year free membership to the professional side of the club. I thought that I might as well take the free membership and build some relationships. However, I did not attend any of the events at first because I was intimidated by being in a room full of professionals that I didn’t know since I had just started working in the industry.

It wasn’t until I heard that Advention and the NSAC were being hosted in Shreveport that I really wanted to get involved. I had such a great experience competing in the NSAC that I knew that I wanted to be able to help in anyway that I could. It was then that I joined the board as the NSAC chair for Advention. I am so glad that I took the step to get involved!

I work as a Graphic Designer at Vintage Realty Company and being involved in this organization has helped me learn new things and further myself as a designer. I can’t wait to see where the future of this club takes me!
