  • Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences | PR Intern

    Auburn, Alabama | August 2014- December 2014

    My last internship before graduation, I assisted the Public Relations/Communications Director with event set-up and implementation and wrote excerpts for the SFWS's online blog, among other various tasks and responsibilities.

    Through this internship I realized how much I loved event planning. As the final chapter in my internship experience, working at the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences helped hammer the nail into what I wanted as my area of focus.

  • Mary Crotty Public Relations | PR Intern

    Dublin, Ireland | June 2014-August 2014

    One of the most amazing experiences of my life, I had the opportunity to intern at a PR firm in Dublin, Ireland, for seven weeks. Here I learned about the fashion + consumer-side of the PR industry. Under direct supervision of Mary Crotty, I was able to attend photo shoots, media events and interviews with our clients. I learned the in's-and-out's of working in a firm, and even better, the daily task and responsibilities my mentors had.

      Some hands-on experience I took from this internship was:
    • Return-on-Investment evaluations
    • Set up events: booking locations
    • Created a booklet of gathered social media mentions for clients

  • The Corner News | PR Intern

    Auburn, Alabama | August 2013- May 2014

    For this internship I helped promote The Corner News brand through marketing activities that engaged the public. We set up booths during city events and handed out free T-Shirts to passerbys in exchange for follows on The Corner News' social media websites. I worked with the editor and fellow interns to come up with other marketing activities for the future.

    I also took pictures of people out and about in Auburn and Opelika for The Corner News' "Cornered" section of the newspaper.

  • Bellingrath Gardens and Home | Events Intern

    Mobile, Alabama | May 2013- August 2013

    I worked under the events director and PR director to complete a variety of tasks during my internship. I helped with event production, set-up and execution as well as recruitment of organizations and professionals for upcoming events.

    On the public relations side of things, I updated media lists and helped the PR Director with daily tasks.
