Jasmine is a Louisiana native with a passion for impacting lives and communities through faith, service, leadership and education. After earning a Master of Science in Public Relations from The University of Southern Mississippi she moved to Southern California to begin her professional career with the Inland Empire United Way.
Jasmine joined the Lion pack at Southeastern Louisiana University after graduating from Franklinton High School in 2011. As Hammond became her home away from home she immersed herself in activities and organizations at the university and in the community. Jasmine earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in December 2014 and transitioned into graduate school shortly after.
She is no stranger to hard work, dedication and perseverance. Within seven semesters at Southeastern she founded the university's chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America, fulfilled several editorial positions in the office of student publications, represented her peers on the 2014 Homecoming Court and was recognized in three competitions in the 2014 Miss Southeastern Louisiana University Scholarship Pageant.
Jasmine also earned consecutive Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities honors during her final undergraduate years and received the 2014 Vice President's Award For Student Excellence. The Alumni Association rewarded her efforts and contributions to Southeastern and the community in recognizing her as the 2014 Dr. LaVanner S. Brown Role Model of the Year honoree and scholarship recipient. At the end of her graduate career, PRSSA awarded Jasmine with the highest honor bestowed upon members selecting her as a recipient of the National Gold Key Award. She also earned the National President's Citation and led USM to their first Star Chapter Award.
A cheerleader at heart, her energy and pride for her educational institutions, communities and causes she feels important is shown wherever she goes. When Jasmine is not writing, volunteering in the community or preparing for the next professional development opportunity, she enjoys spending time with her family, baking, yoga and athletic events.
She attributes her successes to that of service... "to her communities, her profession and her God."
