About Kelly

Well hi! My name is Kelly Hawker and I am currently working for a company called Network Reporting and Mediation. I graduated with a degree in Communications from Wilfrid Laurier University in 2010. In 2012, I also did an internship at AM640 News, which is affiliated Corus Entertainment. During this time, I was in charge of most of the social media outlets for their morning show. I am looking to expand my knowledge and expertise in this area and eventually pursue future career paths in an communications and social media environment. Happy blogging!
