ASHLEY DINKEL

With a B.A. in Journalism & New Media, I have a huge passion for telling stories and informing the public. I strive to be a great storyteller and enjoy working with multimedia including photography, videography, and social media.


Aside from finding joy in constantly refreshing my social media newsfeeds, I enjoy keeping up with the latest local and national news, editing typos, spending time with family, and growing as a professional. 


As of May 2017, I am also working toward obtaining a master's degree in Public Relations from California Baptist University in Riverside, CA. In April 2016, I graduated with my bachelor's in Journalism and New Media with a concentration in writing & publishing.

With years of experience on two newspaper staffs, an internship with the County of San Bernardino Department of Human Services, and through leadership positions, I am eager to continue my career in the communications world.
