My name is Allie, and I’m the newest communications intern here at the Bonita Springs Chamber of Commerce. I’m a senior at Florida Gulf Coast University, majoring in communications with a concentration in public relations. This is only my second year at FGCU, but I’ve loved absolutely every minute of it (well, maybe except for the 90 percent humidity).
This year I’ve had the unique opportunity to work as a resident assistant for a freshman dorm, and as one might imagine, life is never, ever boring. After I graduate this May, I’m planning to move to Madison, Wisconsin, ideally working at one of the computer companies that call the area home. (It’s going to be interesting to transition from spending my weekends on the beach to spending weekends on the slopes!)
When not in school or at work, I love reading just about anything I can get my hands on, taking photos, and watching movies with the least amount of positive reviews possible. (Unfortunately, the college budget and lifestyle does not permit my boundless love of being near horses.) I also love spending time outdoors and with friends.
I’m very excited to be spending the next semester here at the Chamber, learning all I can about nonprofits and working with businesses, and getting the chance to apply what I know!
