Development Intern

Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation

I am interning in the Development office this summer at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation. OMRF is one of the nation’s oldest and most respected nonprofit biomedical research institutes. Located in Oklahoma City, OMRF fosters a worldwide reputation for excellence by following an innovative cross-disciplinary approach to medical research. I have learned a great deal this summer about the overall process of development which should be taken to fundraise for a non-profit company. I have assisted the Vice President of Development, Penny Voss with preparing and delivering presentations, fundraising events and mailings, scheduling meetings, ordering office supplies and organizing files.In addition to this, I have worked a lot with one of my supervisors regarding planned giving. This summer while learning about the planned giving side of development in the non-profit business I have learned how to utilize the planned giving software, Millennium.

Public Relations Intern

Box Talent Agency

I was the public relations intern at Box Talent Agency during my spring internship while at Oklahoma State University. During this internship I maintaned all social media websites that Box Talent Agency utilized. The social media sites I updated were their Twitter, Facebook and Myspace. Along with doing social media work I maintained Box Talent Agency's overall web presence. This was done by updating everything on their site from blog entries to updating the band listing profiles that clients can choose from for events that they are having. Also, I did general office paper work and some basic accounting.
