After graduation, Chrissy worked for a public relations and social media marketing agency in Fishers, Ind., where she earned the title of Senior Account Executive. While Chrissy enjoyed working with a wide variety of local and international B2B and B2C brands, she ultimately decided to put her client relations and problem solving skills to work in the legal field.
