My name is Emily Durham and I am the new Content Creation Specialist at Vitality South. My primary job functions are to help create web copy, write blog posts, monitor and create social media content, and write press releases.
I am a 2020 graduate of the University of Mississippi, where I earned my B.S. in integrated marketing communications with a minor in general business and a specialization in public relations. I learned a great deal in my years at Ole Miss and hope to return for my master’s in the future. Throughout college, I worked for various companies gaining experience in both public relations and journalism, including the Oxford School District and HottyToddy.com.
I have been passionate about writing for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I always loved English class the most because that was where I got to do what came easiest to me. I joined the school paper in my junior year of high school and knew instantly that was what I wanted to do with my life.
I have always been an avid reader, and I still can’t get enough of the cheesy adult/teen fiction books– hold your judgment, please. There is something so therapeutic about escaping to another world, especially if that fictitious world is one filled with cute boys and corny plotlines.
In my free time, I also enjoy junk journaling, doing hot yoga, and playing with my dog, Gertie. This year I hope to improve my journaling and yoga skills and teach my dog another trick besides sit and shake (I’m thinking “play dead!”). In addition, I want to learn and grow in my new role with my company and see our work drive results.
I look forward to seeing what the future holds with me at Vitality South. I get to work with a great group of people who are all passionate about their jobs, and I am finding new inspiration everyday.
