Some of you may be wondering who the new girl is that's writing all these blogs. So here's a little "get-to-know-me" for you curious readers.
My name is Colleen Thompson, and I come all the way from Clarks Grove, MN (about a 2 hour 45 minute drive . . .a little less than that now with the 80 mph speed limit). I'm the daughter of Everett and Karina Thompson and have been for as long as I can remember. I also have an 18 year-old brother, Samuel, that will be graduating from high school tomorrow!!?! We also have a black lab/border collie named Austin, who is also like a brother to me.
I graduated from Albert Lea High School in 2012. I just finished my junior year at the University of Sioux Falls and am majoring in Entrepreneurial Studies and Media Marketing. My goal is to pursue a career in public relations after graduation.
During the school year, I was an R.A., an alto in the concert chorale, a member of the National Society of Leadership & Success, Showcase Coordinator of the Cougar Activities Board, and a life group leader for 8th grade girls at the Oak Hills middle school youth group. Being busy is a specialty of mine!
In my spare time, I love to run, play tennis, read, hang out with my friends, drink iced coffee, and watch Friends and The Office :)
This is my first summer living in Sioux Falls, and I'm excited to be working as Empire Productions' Public Relations Specialist. I love forming relationships with people, writing, and marketing. PR seems to be a pretty good balance of those!
Well hey, thanks for reading all the way to the end.
