Communications Assistant
Office for Outreach and Engagement

Arielle earned dual bachelor’s degrees in Advertising and Public Relations and Political Science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. As an undergraduate, she worked as the Creative Director for the university’s 2021 PRSSA Bateman Competition team. Her team’s campaign, The Civility Effect, placed second nationwide. It was through this work and her continued passion for civic engagement that Arielle was invited to speak on cultivating meaningful civility initiatives at PRSA’s international ICON conference.

Following this passion and a newfound love for data analytics, Arielle worked as a data science intern with Nebraska Civic Engagement Table, a 501(c)3 organization focused on uplifting the rising American electorate. She specialized in analyzing voter trends among youth and first time voters across the state. Arielle came to Colorado in January 2022 to sharpen her skills, pursuing a master’s certificate in data analysis at Colorado State University.

Arielle is beyond excited to continue her work in civic and community engagement with CU Boulder as the Communications Assistant with the Office for Outreach and Engagement!
