About Me

Laura Phillips Garner

I am Laura Phillips Garner, a graduate student in the integrated marketing communications master’s degree program at the Perley Isaac Reed School of Journalism at West Virginia University.

Virtual Butterfly explores new and emerging media and the impact it has on integrated marketing communications in the world around me and in my life. Specifically, I’ll look at how companies use new and emerging media to build relationships with consumers.

  1. Fascinating, Laura. I am delighted to be able to follow this important work you’re doing. Must get together soon.

  2. I’m very jealous of the opportunity you’ve seized to jump into social media with both feet.

    • No need to be jealous! You are welcome to jump in with me. I’ll hold your hand! Seriously, if I can help you in any way with your new media journey. Please let me know! Laura
