Ingrum, Rice & Parr
Along with typical receptionist duties that include scheduling and customer service, I also assisted Charles Ingrum with company marketing. One reason I was hired is because of my public relations knowledge. Each week we meet to talk about new ways the firm can market itself and bring in new clients.
The Coach Pat Dye Show
Social Media Intern
During my time working for Coach Dye, I had the opportunity to work on a variety of tasks. My main focus was handling the show's Twitter account and Facebook account. That including posting to the sites as well as promoting those sites. I also spent a lot of time working with current sponsors and finding new sponsors. The farm was host to many different events during my time working for Coach. I helped plan and set up for these events, as well as ensure the event ran smoothly.
Robert Trent Jones Grand National Golf Course
I was fortunate enough to work at RTJ this summer during the Barbasol Tournament. This was the first tournament Grand National has hosted so there were many logistics to work out. Throughout the week I worked in the club house with the players and their families. The experience allowed me to further my customer service skills by working with a variety of customers. I also had the opportunity to help with room layout and decorations for the event.
Media Relations Intern
My experience at Auburn Athletics was one I will never forget! I had the opportunity to see such insight into the behind-the-scenes components that make up successful sporting events, press releases, news releases, and much more. I had the opportunity to transcribe quotes for Coach Gus Malzahn, learned the ins and outs of every sport Auburn offers, and was able to sit in on many exciting press releases.
Camp Trico- Girl Scouts of North Central Alabama
During my time at Camp Trico and Camp Coleman, I primarily worked as a horseback riding instructor. I spent my days caring for the horses at the program and teaching young children how to properly ride. Another large part of my job was ensuring the horse program had all necessary supplies to run smoothly. I spent many afternoons and weekends promoting the program and drawing in new customers. This was where I first realized how much I enjoyed talking to potential customers and sharing my experiences to sparks the interests of others. I created pamphlets and flyers to pass out to potential customers, attended various camp fairs and helped with fundraising events for the camp.
