Priority Health-Marketing

1. Tell us about your journey since graduation.
After graduation, I continued my internship, and then a full-time position, at a local Public Relations firm that one of my previous AD/PR professors owned, until the end of 2019. We had handled various public relations needs for about eight local clients in the Grandville area. In May of 2020, I started an intern position in Priority Health’s Marketing department. I focus on member-facing communications and marketing.

2. Share a favorite Grand Valley memory.
My favorite Grand Valley memory is attending Toast with T.Haas. This experience was something I was looking forward to since my involvement with Laker Traditions in my freshman year. I am grateful to have been a part of the last graduating class to be able to have this memory.

3. What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Always say yes to new experiences and opportunities.

4. List three words you would use to describe your Grand Valley experience.
Opportunity, welcoming, and hard-working.

5. What difference would you like to make in the world?
To continue to be an advocate for making environmentally-conscious choices, knowing that every little bit counts-even if it is simply encouraging others to shop at thrift stores or to reduce single-use plastic.
