Project I am Proud of

I’ve been at R&CPMK for a year and a half, and although I’m proud of all the work I’ve been a part of thus far, I am especially proud and excited about our new summer internship program with the nonprofit organization, Our Own. This partnership is more than just a collaboration between organizations. It’s an opportunity to build a generation by amplifying what it means to maximize potential in our youth. Together, we will create a roadmap toward quantitative and qualitative change, paving the way for innovation and transformation in the industry. R&CPMK is proud to be a catalyst for change and create a more inclusive and equitable future for all.

Favorite Memory Here

The people are by far the best part of working at R&CPMK. The relationships I’ve built throughout the agency have contributed to my success professionally and personally. We have impeccable talent across our Talent and Brands teams, and I am honored to support them. The happy hours, department-led pizza parties, and massage and acupuncture treatments in-house are also memorable events in my time working here.

Best Piece of Advice I've received

The best piece of advice I’ve received, and I now also give, is to pause. Not everything needs a response right away. Take a moment to pause, reflect, and formulate a thoughtful response. Our Chairman, Cindi Berger made this statement on a leadership call, and it has stayed with me since.

My Advice for Someone Just Starting Out

Ask questions! You don’t know what you don’t know. Be assertive, and volunteer for every opportunity manageable. The more experience you gain in this industry, the more well-rounded you become. Build and utilize your network!
