Meet Courtney: Our 2023 Summer Intern!
Tell us a little bit about yourself: My name is Courtney! I am a rising senior at Gonzaga University studying public relations, digital marketing, promotions, and journalism. I was born and raised in Oregon and love the PNW. In my free time I love to spend time with family and friends, get outside, coach youth soccer, travel and learn new things!
There are many PR agencies; why Revolution?
Working for a company like Revolution that reflects my own values was very appealing to me. I strive to understand how my lifestyle choices impact the world around me and am always looking to limit my global footprint and make a more sustainable world. I’ve always been passionate about fitness and living a healthy lifestyle. I believe that the way that we treat ourselves reflects how we treat the world. Immediately when I met the team at Rev, I felt supported, heard, and knew that I would be surrounded by strong professionals rooted in similar values and dedicated to the growth of all members of the team!
What attracted you to pursue PR as a career?
As someone who is driven, a people person, avid communicator, and passionate learner, I felt that a career in public relations was the right fit for me. Further, I chose public relations because of its versatility and its encapsulation of all my favorite areas of study. PR is exciting and allows me to be outgoing, creative, positive, make an impact and work directly with people, all which I love!
We’re on a mission to do better, be better, promoting a better way to live. What does this mean for you?
To live intentionally and take advantage of each moment and opportunity is very important to me! I strive to do better and be better in all aspects of my life each day. We are all beacons of hope for a better future, and in all that I do I strive to leave each person and each thing a little better than I found it. We only have one Earth, so we have to treat it with care and promote sustainability and the bettering of our planet each day. Kindness, listening, and understanding are so important to better the world around us.
Is there a workout that you’re loving right now?
I am an avid health and wellness junkie and love working out every day! Hiking, yoga, walks with friends, and just being in nature are all things I enjoy. If I had to choose one workout, it would be running! I grew up playing soccer and transitioned to running as an adult to fulfill my passion for exercise!
What media outlet (publication, podcast, blog, etc.) are you loving right now and why?
I love health and wellness influencers, especially those who focus on sustainability and clean living. Those who live holistically and share new recipes and tips for learning, growing, and healing are my favorite! I love to cook and am always looking for new blogs, influencers, and articles on new ways to incorporate clean living into my daily life! My fave right now is the Clean Eating mag!
If you had to choose one thing that you are most passionate about, what would it be and why?
Being present with who I am with and in whatever I am doing is of the utmost importance to me. I am passionate about being present with my family and friends and making sure to be intentional with my time with people. It is important to me that I give 100% of myself to people when I am with them and in everything that I do in my daily life. I want everyone in my life to feel important and appreciated and I want my work to be done to the best of my ability. In focusing on presence, I have found that I am a better friend, listener, student, employee, learner, and all-around person. Time goes by fast, and I want to be present and enjoy every minute of my life!
