About elizabethccross

I am from Albert Bridge, a small community on the outskirts of Sydney, Nova Scotia. I just recently graduated from the Mount in May 2012 with a Bachelor of Public Relations and a Certificate in Marketing. I enjoyed my educational experience so much that I decided that I would continue and begin my Master of Public Relations! I have a keen interest in strategic communications, social media and event planning. I love traveling and experiencing new cultures. When I’m not busy planning my next trip (big or small) I enjoy spending time at home surrounding myself with family, friends and the cutest dog in the world.
