Team you’re working on here at Ogilvy?
I work on the account management side for Nestlé Waters. Which means I’m in the cock pit of the sparkling water submarine. Day-to-day I’m attending meetings, communicating with different departments within the building, helping to get projects out the door and treating my body like the Pompelmo Flavored San Pellegrino Sparkling Fruit Beverage receptacle it was always destined to be. Nestlé Waters is a really busy team, and I love the pace of the work.
How would you describe your morning routine?
5 more minutes…
What’s your staple work outfit?
Black pants, big smile
Where do you go for lunch?
Ogilvy café, I make sure to get a little extra for Zach to mooch off of.
What’s your favorite spot in the office?
There's a room with cozy purple chairs on the 9th floor. I like to sit there early in the morning with a copy editing task and my (first) cup of coffee.
When you’re not in the office, what do you like to do around NYC?
Hanging out with my sister in the park, eating pasta downtown, staying on the right side of the tracks.
How did you hear about Ogilvy and this internship?
My marketing professor told my class that Ogilvy was the gold standard. The rest is history!
What do you think is special about this Ogilvy internship?
Having worked at a few e-commerce start-ups, production companies, and one kosher pizza shop, I can confidently say that Ogilvy is second-to-none in the talent department. My team includes me totally in their work, and I’ve seen the results in the form of ads in the subway, events around the city, and prints in the magazines I read.
Most of all I appreciate the thoughtful, kind, and smart internship class. Zach’s cool as well.
What do you wish you knew about Ogilvy before you started your internship here?
The office may as well be in the Hudson.
What are you looking forward to in your senior year of college?
Delaying adulthood, writing for The Every Three Weekly (Michigan’s satirical Onion-style newspaper), and learning about art.
