What do you hope to learn during your time at the agency?
Overall, I hope to have a better understanding of how a marketing company works and help figure out, in-depth, what I really am interested in. Knowing that will help me understand the types of marketing classes I would like to take in my last two years at school.
What made you want to intern here?
I have a double major in marketing and management. However, most of my interest is in marketing. It was really important to me to have an internship that focused on marketing so the experience would benefit me the most. It was exactly what I was looking for and was also close to home.

What is something you’ve always wanted to try but were too scared to do?
I have always wanted to own my own Etsy shop, but I am scared I would not have enough time.
What’s the most important thing you’ve learned in college?
Time management. I found out quickly that you need to use your time wisely and concentrate to get the most important things done first, which in my case was my schoolwork.
