Summary

      Since re-locating to New York, I have been interning at the PR firm Brand Building Communications.  There, I work with both Mass Product and Luxury clients including L'Oréal Paris, Dove Chocolate, Untitled 11:11, and Rare Vintage.  This experience has broadened my understanding of brand management, effective PR methods, and event planning.  Through Brand Building Communications, I have continued to develop client relationships and branched into media relationships.  However, it was at Motricity that I first gained experience interacting directly with clients and working on marketing projects.  As someone with a proactive way of thinking, I am continually striving to exceed clients' expectations and to anticipate their needs.       

      My experience working with varied software programs and accounts at Motricity has helped shape my ability to transfer quickly between multiple platforms and simultaneously manage large projects. Working with varied clients and tight deadlines at Brand Building Communications also further honed my multi-tasking and priortizing skills. In addition, I have gained the confidence to be thorough and efficient, while maintaining accountability to ensure successful interfacing with clients.  At both places, I coordinated with a team to proficiently handle a variety of requests, ranging widely from weekly refreshes of mobile content, to launching promotions, managing reports, and ensuring media placements.  Throughout my experiences at Motricity, I became increasingly involved with Motrcity's clients, and was empowered to make independent decisions concerning their questions and requests. Later, at Brand Buiding Communications, I began training newer interns, and interacting with clients, pursuing new media contacts, and maintiaing current relationships.

      I am now searching for a position that will further develop my skills while benefiting from my successful handling of accounts at Motricity and the organization, and communication skills that I continued to develop through my internship.    References available upon request.
