About Rebeka Morales
Solving problems and achieving goals with strategic planning is what I do- that is at the heart of every job, internship and volunteer opportunity I have chosen in my career thus far.
Working in marketing and event planning, I combine creative skills and project management expertise to produce successful and cohesive results. My current position requires the ability to translate complicated engineering concepts and research reports into easily understandable marketing materials for public consumption to a wide variety of internal and external audiences. After accepting this position, I began photography and video production initiatives to modernize the marketing efforts and the department immediately saw a return on their investment. In addition, I coordinate 10+ large events each year which include venue, catering, marketing collateral, flight, hotel accommodations and day-of logistics.
As the Digital Marketing Director and Executive Board Member for Norman Pride, I am able to bring value as a volunteer to the LGBTQ+ community using my technical skills. Throughout the year, we plan local events and fundraisers for the Norman, Oklahoma community to have a safe place to have fun, be involved and meet each other.
In any of my leadership positions, I connect team members to the right resources in order to accomplish a shared goal, event, campaign or product. I am continuously researching and learning from leaders I admire in order to become an inclusive collaborator, proactive manager and creative thinker.
One of the most exciting projects I managed was Mystik Sanctuary Music Festival. A 2-day Electronic Dance Music (EDM) festival that brought over 10,000 people from all across the world to enjoy over 60 acts on 3 stages to Oklahoma City. From concept to fruition, I lead a team of 50+ people in marketing, development, talent acquisition, production and logistics to ensure a successful (and fun!) event occurred.
In addition to my full-time position as the Communications Coordinator at the School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at OU, I am currently freelancing in graphic design, web design, and content marketing. I can be reached either on Linkedin or through my portfolio website.
