Being a Public Relations and Social Media Intern isn’t exactly what I expected it to be.  It’s so much MORE. Being a marketing major, I learned loads in the classroom, but having the in-agency experience has been something else.  This experience allows me to continuously learn from my surroundings and colleagues.  That’s why I find the PR world so exciting!

PR is definitely a learn-as-you-go type of industry requiring a quick mind, excellent attention to detail and a strong ability to multi-task. Here at Neff Associates, I’ve also learned that having fun along the way is never a bad thing either.  My daily tasks are just as crucial as any of the members in the company.  I help to track media mentions for several clients, compile media reports and clippings, help with media lists for press release distribution, and manage social profiles for clients on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, WordPress and Instagram.  A lot of work goes into everyday life in the PR world and my insight helps the team run smoothly.

I am a 2012 graduate of Saint Joseph’s University (THWND) with a degree in food marketing. I’ve Irish danced for 16 years and recently started teaching it. I have an extreme love for froyo and boy bands. (Backstreet Boys over NSYNC obv) and I can’t wait to see what this crazy world of PR has to offer me and where this invaluable work experience at Neff Associates takes me!
