This week's #WCW comes from our intern, Emma.
Dawn Doty is one of my teachers at CU (has been for three semesters!) and is actually my faculty advisor for my Krimson Klover internship. I really look up to her and value her opinions and work ethic.
"As an undergraduate years ago, I first wanted to be a teacher. While I quickly changed my major to communication, little did I know that my passion for learning and educating would be a key part of my success as a communication professional. Now, after an extensive PR career, I joined the University of Colorado - Boulder as a faculty member to teach public relations." -- Dawn
Dawn Doty joined CMCI as a full-time public relations instructor in August 2016. Before joining CU Boulder, she worked as partner and vice president at Denver-based Linhart Public Relations where she earned a reputation as an energizing, creative and no-nonsense leader who cares deeply for her team and clients. Her clients included Chipotle, Crocs, General Mills, Southwest Airlines, and the U.S. Air Force Academy, to name a few.
