Hi there! My name is Audrey and I’m a communications major with a focus in public relations at UW. I was lucky enough to be an intern at Curator last summer through fall and I had so much fun that I’m back for round two!
Last year I was a newbie in the field, and I didn’t really know if PR was something I wanted to do long term. As my internship went on, and each day I learned something new, I loved what I was doing more and more. I love that you have to earn your coverage, which requires strategic thinking, and it’s the best feeling to see a piece you pitched get picked up. PR is definitely a career path that I want to pursue, which is what led me back here. I missed being in the office and part of the Curator team, I couldn’t be more excited to be back in my old desk!
Outside of interning I am also actively involved in my campus PRSSA club. It’s a great organization to be involved in and has led me to meet a lot of people within the industry. I take every opportunity I can to get involved in PR related activities, from volunteering with the WE Day PR team (I got to be 5-feet away from Ciara! Cue reaction) to going to networking events.
Coming from a small town I absolutely love living in Seattle and don’t plan on leaving anytime soon. There are so many things to do and places to explore. In my free time you can find me running around Green Lake, sipping on a basic Starbucks drink, or betting on who’s going to win this season of The Bachelor.
