I’m 30, I love The Simpsons, and I’m a mashed potato enthusiast. Anyway, I graduated as a Communications Major in 2013 from Longwood University.
In 2013, I interned with the Richmond Flying Squirrels and worked at State Farm after that.
It didn’t take long to realize that insurance wasn’t at all for me, so in 2016, I moved to Augusta, Georgia for the summer to be the Media Relations and Marketing Intern with the Augusta GreenJackets. This incredible opportunity provided me with an array of responsibilities, leading to the management of the teams’ social media channels, contributing, creating, and producing external publications, press releases, flyers, game recaps, newsletters, and content for the GreenJackets’ official website and social media.
I also drove players to the airport and gained a true appreciation for your local mascots you see swarmed by hundreds of kids in the summer heat.
In addition, I served as the teams’ main point-of-contact, working with local and national media outlets, including the Augusta Chronicle, WRDW, The Washington Post, MiLB.com, and MiLB headquarters in New York City. You can read all about my time in Augusta here.
I also went to Nashville, Tennessee for the annual 2015 MLB Winter Meetings.
