As a Communications Intern, I found a passion for social media and all things marketing. With prior intern experience, it wasn’t until I started my work with SPM that I finally found my voice and place as a professional. I began to build my experience in email marketing, social media management, blog writing and editing, account management, event planning, and many more areas of marketing. SPM gives you the opportunity to grow as an individual, marketer, and team member, and allows for upward growth in the company itself. I am proud to say that I could be a part of such a unique, hardworking team.
