We’re so excited to have Carolyn join our team as an Intern! Learn a little more about her in the interview below.
Tell us a little about yourself:
I was born in Portland, OR, where I lived until I moved to the cute and eclectic town of Eugene, OR to attend the University of Oregon. I spent all four years in Eugene exploring the exciting health-food scene, hiking new trails, and making life-long friendships. I graduated with a degree in Public Relations and Sociology and am excited to utilize the skills I learned in school as I begin my career at Revolution!
There are a lot of PR agencies out there, why did you pick Revolution?
I was initially attracted to Revolution because of the list of clients they work with and how those clients aligned with my desire to work in lifestyle PR. Once I met with the team, I was not only intrigued by Revolution’s clients, but also by the passionate, creative and collaborative work environment. Revolution was exactly the type of place I was looking to join.
What attracted you to pursue PR as a career?
I have always wanted a career in PR, even before I knew what it was called. When I was younger, I would make powerpoint presentations to convince my parents to let me get a puppy or do certain activities and they usually worked! When I went to college I began taking journalism classes and realized that by pursuing a career in PR, I could combine my skills in communication and writing with my love of connecting with people into a career that I was passionate about.
We’re an agency of self-proclaimed wellness junkies! What is your favorite trend in the wellness space right now?
I am always trying new things when it comes to health and wellness, but my favorite trend right now is drinking celery juice in the morning. I was never super into the juicing fad, but a friend of mine was obsessed with celery juice so, I thought I would give it a try and now I’m hooked! It’s a great way to get a boost of vitamins in the morning, and I swear it makes my skin glow.
Is there a workout that you’re loving right now?
I am always trying new workouts, but because I recently moved to Seattle, I am excited to go back to basics and explore my new neighborhood by going on runs!
One of our biggest motivations when it comes to exercise is being able to sport cute activewear! Is there a specific item that you’re particularly obsessed with these days?
I am a huge fan of the athleisure trend! It’s cute and comfy, what more could you ask for?! A style I am particularly into at the moment is tennis shoes that can function well during a workout and look cute with any outfit, like the Nike Renew Arena running shoes.
If you had to choose one thing that you are most passionate about, what would it be and why?
It’s hard for me to pick one, but at the moment I am most passionate about being positive and bringing positivity to everything I do. I believe that having a positive attitude when approaching any situation in life can greatly improve the outcome and makes the experience much more enjoyable for everyone involved.
