YOakleyPR Intern of the Month for December 2015

Congratulations to Stephanie Reeves, our December Intern of the Month!

Stephanie Reeves, Intern of the MonthStephanie Reeves started her Public Relations internship with YOakleyPR in August 2015. While learning about the public relations world, Stephanie has consistently displayed a strong sense of commitment and leadership to her team, the tasks that she has been given, and the new challenges she has had to face along the way. As a PR intern at YOakleyPR, this Georgia Southern University senior has had the difficult task of managing her time between her studies and working as a guest relations coordinator at Marriott-Hilton Head. Some of Stephanie’s challenges have really impressed her teammates during her internship and here are some of the complimentary things that they had to say about her:

“Stephanie has really stepped into the role as lead intern for the Women’s Veterans Rock campaign and overcome many hurdles varying from graphics to social media guides and everything in between. She has really shown that she can exceed and continuously act as a professional.”

“Stephanie is encouraging of others to do their part in projects and offers help whenever someone feels they need it. She has accomplished quite a bit with her time working on WVR projects.”

“Stephanie is encouraging of others to do their part in projects and offers help whenever someone feels they need it. She really seems to enjoy working in the team and that adds to the whole in making everyone feel like part of the team.”

“I chose Stephanie because she is nice, has worked hard, and deserves a nice reward.”

“Stephanie has shown that she has what it takes to be a team leader. She worked with Naomi & Ksystof to prepare and produced a wonderful #WomenVetsROCK Twitter Chat, which just goes to show that she is ready and willing to take on new challenges — and surpass expectations!”

We recently caught up with Stephanie about her YOakleyPR internship and here is what she had to say:

“This internship has given me the opportunity to gain valuable experience in public relations. This has been a wonderful experience to really study all facets of PR outside of the classroom. It was taught me the importance of effective communication between every member of the team and organization in this field.”
