I’m Amanda Renken and welcome to my blog! I will be discussing various topics relating to emerging or “new” media as part of a course I am taking for my Master’s Degree in Integrated Marketing Communications at WVU. I have been working as a media buyer for nearly three years now and prior to that I worked in various roles in the marketing field such as public relations and event planning. I hope you enjoy what I have to say and I look forward to hearing your feedback as well!
In addition to my work as a media buyer, I am an active member of my local community through membership in the Junior League and serving as the communications chair for my local chapter of the American Marketing Association (AMA).
Outside of all the marketing hoopla, I enjoy watching football, cooking and spending time with my family. And aside from my graduate studies, full time job and volunteer work, I had to add a newborn into the mix (as if life wasn’t busy enough!). My husband and I welcomed our first child, Wyatt Paul, into the world on September 15th, 2015.
I look forward to interacting with you all in the coming weeks!
