What brought you to SpeakEasy?
SpeakEasy’s mission and values immediately stood out to me. I am eager to begin working for an organization that is doing such progressive and innovative work in the political space!
What is your favorite course you’ve taken so far?
There have been several courses I have taken at GW that have been incredibly influential on my aspirations and interests. One that specifically stands out to me is “Strategy Formulation and Implementation,” where I developed skills in diagnosing organizational problems as well as formulating and selecting strategic alternatives.
What are your post-graduation plans?
Post graduation, I would love to move to San Francisco or New York and continue my involvement in the marketing and corporate social responsibility space.
What’s your favorite thing about interning at SpeakEasy so far?
The people! The team is so welcoming and supportive which has made me so excited to become an integrative part of SpeakEasy.
What’s your first post-Covid trip or activity?
Last spring, I was able to study abroad in Sydney, Australia for a semester. Unfortunately COVID-19 cut these plans two months short, so I would love to spend some time back in Australia and continue traveling the country (best place in the world!).
Favorite local business?
My local coffee shop at home in Rhode Island has hands down the best coffee I’ve ever had. If you’re in Rhode Island, go to Coffee Depot! In DC, a few of my favorites are Kramers in Dupont and Tryst in Adams Morgan.
What’s keeping you grounded these days?
My family and friends have been my rock throughout all of this uncertainty. On top of that, lots of music always keeps me grounded!
Abby is thrilled to support the marketing and sales team and help support progressive campaigns up and down the ballot. Welcome, Abby… let’s get to work!
