As an intern in the Worcester office, I have had the opportunity to work with the Higgins Armory, Worcester Art Museum and Reliant Medical Group. I have written many press releases for events sponsored by Higgins Armory Museum. I also wrote press releases about new doctors joining the practice at Reliant Medical Group. In addition, I have also worked with media sources tracking software to analyze media placements for the Worcester Art Museum.
I have applied concepts that I learned in my Public Relations class, such as composing media lists and writing press releases. I have heard concepts from my Marketing on the Internet class being referenced in the meetings I have attended.

Pam’s purpose is to inspire millions of women, teens and girls to live their HIPP life.
As an intern for Pam, I have had the opportunity to work side-by-side with her to help market her book, and to also learn all that she has to offer in business and in life.
