Social Media & Development Intern at the Eiteljorg

This May, I was awarded the privilege of working at the Eiteljorg as an intern for Hyacinth Rucker, New Media and Web Coordinator. While my exposure to social media was, like most 22 year olds, substantial, I didn't have much sense of how I'd be utilizing it for marketing purposes. Within two days, Hyacinth showed me not only the power of the web, but also how important it is for a non-profit to have a strong online presence. Whether covering events, gallery openings, important museum visitors or local festivals, I've learned how to promote an organization using the power of social media, and the diligence necessary to do so successfully. 

In addition to my enriching time with Hyacinth, I joined Sarah Farthing as a development intern this past October. Although our time working together was brief, she further confirmed my love and true enjoyment of working in development.

All of this professional development aside, the biggest thing I'm taking away from my time at the Eiteljorg is the connection I've made with the staff here. In just six months, I've met and built relationships with some of the most incredibly talented, driven and passionate people I've ever met. From those in marketing to development to the guides and security at the museum, I've had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful souls that bring so much to the museum each day.
