Deseret News

Intern

As an intern for the Deseret News, I was responsible for covering the "care for the poor" beat which included national topics such as incarceration, addiction and poverty. I pitched at least one story per week to an editorial team for review and approval. I wrote 1,000+ word enterprise stories in which I interviewed national experts around the country and people who had personally been touched by addiction, poverty, etc.

Utah Argos

Intern

As a Utah Argos intern, I wrote press releases and produced media content for the organization's website weekly. I worked closely with the PR and marketing teams to promote the team in the media. I attended all home games and conducted interviews with coaches and players both at practice and after games. I was involved with some social media coordinating, such as live tweeting during games, and I also provided extensive content for the team's media kit and game-day programs.
