Fall 2017 I interned for USA Team Handball. I had to the opportunity to be exposed to and work with an Olympic sport. I assisted in recruitment for the residency program at Auburn, sat in on Olympic board conference calls and assisted in managing social media for USA Team Handball and Auburn Kinesiology. This internship gave me a better idea of the way the Olympic Committee works with each individual sport that is associated with the United States Olympic Committee.
For the summer of 2017, I spent time in my hometown working for Knight Eady Sports Group. I met Knight Eady at a Public Relations conference in Auburn, and immediately wanted to learn more about them. The core values of this company truly reflect the work they produce and it was an absolute privilege working on their team. As a summer intern I worked on many different projects. My first duty was Check-In Manager for over 11,000 athletes attending the 2017 Senior Games in Birmingham, AL. Following the Senior Games, I focused on managing the Lutzie 43 Foundation social media strategy, managing all Mike Lutzenkirchen speaking engagements, and managing social media accounts for several other clients.
My first postion in the Auburn Athletic Department was in recruiting. I worked as a Student of Auburn Recruiting (SOAR). My duties included hosting potential student-athletes on unofficial and official visits to Auburn, working Auburn Lettermen events and preparing the recruiting office for events. During my junior year at Auburn I was an Office Marketing Intern for the Auburn Athletic Department. I was surrounded by professionals in the office and on the field. During my time with this internship I was exposed to Adobe Photoshop and InDesign, marketing strategies and marketing operations. I was the lead intern for the 2017 NCAA Top Eight Auburn Women’s Tennis Team as well as the 2017 NCAA tournament eligible Auburn Baseball Team.
I moved to Dallas, TX for the summer of 2016. I worked as a Junior Tour Operations Intern for the Northern Texas PGA. Each day I woke up before the sun and headed out to the golf course to prepare for a tournament. This internship allowed me to grow in more ways than I thought were possible. I learned to communicate effectively as a representative of an organization, work on a team and learn more about the golf industry.
