We’re so excited to have two incredible interns on our team this summer! Read below to find out a little bit more about Kate Lochner and Joy Diehl.
Where are you from and where do you attend college?
KL: I grew up in Vermont but ditched the cold weather to go to college in North Carolina at East Carolina University.
JD: I am from Nashville, TN. I attend Azusa Pacific University in Los Angeles, CA.
What do you like most about public relations?
KL: I like public relations because it’s applicable to so many industries and entails so many different things. I’ve always been an on-the-move person so having a career with a lot of fluidity like public relations excites me!
JD: I enjoy finding solutions to problems, and I love to work with people.
Have any unique hobbies?
KL: When I was younger I was a competitive alpine ski racer! But I have since taken up less accident prone activities like running and hiking. I lived on a ski mountain for most of high school so that fueled my love for ski racing but during the summer months when there wasn’t any snow is when we grew to love hiking as well.
JD: Does eating Nutella count as a hobby? I eat it a lot. I also sing, but that is not very unique.
What are you most looking forward to getting from you internship at the Bradford Group?
KL: I’m excited for the boots-on-the-ground feel of this internship and getting to know the atmosphere of a PR agency! Working with different members of TBG everyday has already taught me so many different things and we still have a whole summer to go.
JD: Because it if my first internship, I am looking forward to learning more about the industry and what it looks like to work for a PR firm.
What three words best describe your personality?
KL: Easy-going, independent, positive
JD: Consistent, easy-going, and honest.
When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
KL: Like most kids I think had a new thing I wanted to be every week, but the one that stuck around the longest was a photographer, then I shifted towards photojournalism for awhile!
JD: When I was super young, I wanted to be a mail woman. In elementary school, I wanted to be a pop star.
