Introducing our Summer 2020 Intern

Meet Leanne, our Summer 2020 Digital Media + Design Intern who is taking full advantage of her summer break to join our dream team.



Leanne is currently a junior Art and Design major at Sacred Heart University, originally from Medway, Massachusetts. Despite always having a passion for art, Leanne began her time at Sacred Heart undecided in her major; however, after taking a drawing class in the spring of her freshman year, she knew immediately that the Art and Design community at SHU was where she belonged.

Even though she is new to the event-planning world, Leanne is extremely excited to begin her journey working with the East of Ellie team. She hopes to gain lots of graphic design experience, and learn more about what goes into the creative side of planning events! Leanne is currently bringing in watercolor into some of our internal marketing designs, creating fun layouts for our upcoming Style Series, and working to spice up our Spotify Profile with playlist covers.

When she isn’t drawing or playing around in Adobe Illustrator, Leanne can be found on the tennis court or laughing along to her favorite t.v. show Friends.  


1. Has two older sisters – which means LOTS of fighting over clothes! 2. She has a huge sweet tooth, especially when it comes to ice cream. 3. Used to be a Starbucks barista, which is probably the reason for her coffee addiction. 4. She is passionate about traveling the world – she has already traveled to Italy, Spain, Ireland, and Canada.  5. Her favorite season is summer – she hopes to move somewhere warm someday because winters in MA are just too cold!
