digital creations by lauren jurgemeyer
I am originally from San Diego, California, but I have been living in San Antonio, Texas, for nearly 10 years. I am a recent graduate from Texas State University with plans to work as a content creator.
Going into college, I had the original intent of becoming a theatre educator, I came to find that my calling was in the realm of digital media and switched my major to digital media innovation (DMI) my second year.
Through the DMI program I have become proficient in subjects such as multimedia journalism, design, and social media and analytics. I have learned HTML and CSS and have worked with programs such as Adobe Premiere, InDesign, Lightroom, Audition and Photoshop.
In addition to a busy schedule, I managed to earn Dean’s List every semester since enrollment. I am a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success, Phi Kappa Phi, Kappa Tau Alpha and was inducted to the College of Fine Arts and Communication Council of Scholars twice.
In 2018 I joined KTSW, the official radio station of Texas State University, as an editor and contributor to their blog. The following semester, I was promoted to Assistant Web Content Manager and in May 2019, I took over as Web Content Manager. I continued in this position until my graduation.
Currently, I am working as a freelance independent contractor for the Northeast Independent School District (NEISD). I currently have a contract with Reagan Stage at Ronald Reagan High School, where I design graphics and act as a public relations consult. I work as the public relations specialist for TAAP Public Safety, Saf and Secur. Additionally, I hold a position with KC Social Innovation Center as the Social Media Coordinator.
