Legislative Affairs Intern
Associated Students of Portland State University
Sept. 2011 – Dec. 2011. I supported the Legislative Affairs Director with office tasks while attending regular leadership classes as part of the internship program. I learned how to canvass for a variety of PSU events and issues and was designated Phonebanking Coordinator. From my work, a colleague recommended I apply to become part of the Elections Board to oversee the spring student elections. I was confirmed into the board December 2011.
Social Media Intern
Half Sky Journeys
Oct. 2015 – Dec. 2015. I worked closely with the founder of Half Sky Journeys on their Rwanda 2015 campaign via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Tumblr. I created a publishing schedule and researched Rwanda and/or women’s empowerment news to post to social media with Hootsuite. In addition, I reached out to local organizations to help advertise the Rwanda trip on their own social media channels and e-mail lists.
Jan. 2017 – Mar. 2017. I helped the Development Associate/Volunteer Coordinator with office tasks and entering donation receipts and donor information into Donor Perfect. After a volunteer orientation, I helped review and enter in volunteer information into Volgistics and run background checks. I also supported the Development Associate with research on a variety of topics.
