Marketing & Research Intern - US News & World Report


My key responsibilities during my internship as a Research Assistant at U.S. News included:

1. I was tasked with mining data on related companies for both the Best Hospitals and Best Colleges & Universities Rankings. I utilized complex Excel formulas, and employed various research tools to compile and organize substantial datasets. 

2. My work contributed to the company's mission of empowering individuals with valuable information for making informed decisions in the areas of education and healthcare.

Revenue Intern - Interscope Geffen A&M Records


Overall, this internship was the most fulfilling and fun experience I've ever had in a work environment. My life goal is to host a annual hometown festival starting in 2027 and this summer definitely helped me towards just that. My three learning goals I chose to execute before this internship were to network with music industry professionals effectively, develop a strong foundation in data analysis and reporting, and understand the revenue streams in the music industry. Some of the tasks I worked on this summer included: 

Editorial Assistant with Today Media


This summer I built a portfolio of professionally written articles covering Westchester County’s business activities and lifestyle and performed outreach projects within two departments for content creation. I also served as a liaison between three editorial staff members on research, writing, communications, and Excel data management for Westchester Magazine and business-to-business lifestyle publication, 914INC. Some projects I worked on included organizing content for the 914INC Best of Business feature for the September/October issue and writing eight articles under both publications.

Editorial Internship with The Adirondack Review


The Adirondack Review is an online literary magazine that publishes a wide range of work from fiction to translated works and more. Founded close to St. Lawrence University, I was introduced to this magazine through another student at St. Lawrence and decided it would be the perfect opportunity to explore another side of publishing as someone who wants to enter said field. I have had different experiences with other types of publishing, such as on-campus magazines like The Laurentian Magazine and The St. Lawrence Review
