Associate, ImPRessions Internal Account
November 18, 2011
Linsey Riley, a junior communication studies major, has been named the October ImPRessions Associate of the month. Linsey works for the OU Performing Arts Series account where she has excelled with the firm. Nicole Ranieri, Account Executive of OU Performing Arts highly recommended Linsey because of her work with the Baker Black Tie Affair event. Nicole stated, “Our big Baker Black Tie Affair event wouldn’t have been able to happen without all her help. She did so much to help with planning the event. She picked up all the items we needed and painted two beautiful banners for college gate.” Linsey was very involved with the fall Janelle Monae concert and enjoyed working on the project.
A native of Dayton, OH, Linsey is very interested in public relations. She joined ImPRessions to get involved with a PR organization. Initially apprehensive, Linsey stated, “After the first meeting I was sold! I feel so lucky to be on this account, I love the arts and going to the shows and preparing for them is more fun than work.” She has always loved writing and social interaction; therefore, working for ImPRessions has solidified her dreams of a career in PR.
Linsey is an invaluable associate for the OU Performing Arts account. ImPRessions has opened many doors for Linsey, including enabling her to attend many shows and experience hands on PR work. ImPRessions has also led her to build friendships with her fellow account associates. She is also a member of PRSSA.
Congratulations Linsey Riley on being named the October ImPRessions Account Associate of the Month!
