East Alabama Medical Center Intern

From June to August 2016, I interned with East Alabama Medical Center (EAMC). EAMC is the closest hospital to Auburn and was a joy to work for. My tasks included:

  • Writing for various projects such as the employee newsletter and press releases
  • Helping with hospital social media, mainly the Facebook page
  • Clipping and filing newspaper articles
  • Attending and conducting interviews for the employee newsletter
  • Helped with website search engine optimization

Jessica Simpson Campus Ambassador

I was a campus ambassador for Jessica Simpson (yes, the Jessica Simpson) during the fall 2015 semester. This ambassadorship heavily utilized my organization, planning and collaboration skills. I helped bring a fashion show, a campus scavenger hunt, a denim bar and trunk show to life with the help of my fellow ambassador, also named Katie. Each week, I used social media to the fullest extent to promote Jessica Simpson events and encourage attendance. Throughout the semester, thousands of dollars worth of Jessica Simpson products was given to Auburn students through our events and campaigns. In September 2015, we attended a party in New York City for the launch of Jessica Simpson's 10th Anniversary clothing line. Yes, I got to meet Jessica. Read more about my time as an ambassador here.

Social Media Manager - Zazu Gastropub

In December 2015, I was hired by Zazu Gastropub, a lovely seafood and burger restaurant in a neighboring town to manage their social media. I post on the Facebook, Instagram and Twitter profiles for the restaurant. Some interesting things I have done for Zazu Gastropub include:

  • Helped create social media designs for special event menus (ex. New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day)
  • Created social media graphics to promote events such as wine nights and holiday celebrations
  • Started an "Instagram Menu" using photos submitted by followers

Social Media Manager - Chandler's Plumbing and Heating Co., Inc.

Since 2009, I have worked for a plumbing company in Falls Church, Virginia, every summer. When I was younger, my tasks included filing, mailing, data input and billing. In 2014, I was given an opportunity to help manage the company Facebook page. This was my first shot at managing a company social media site.
