Meet Our Summer 2015 Interns!

It’s that time again here at EOE where we welcome our two fabulous 2015 interns.

It is our pleasure to welcome Karen Marin and Tori Rotermund to the team who will be planning and socialin’ away this summer.

Karen Marin, Event Planning Intern

karenKaren Marin is a senior at the University of Connecticut, originally from Norwalk, Connecticut. Next spring she will receive her B.A in Communications with a minor in Business. Karen’s decision to attend UConn was based on its respected academic reputation, strong school spirit and the wide variety of organizations and clubs students can be involved with on campus.

Her outgoing and personable character contributes to her active involvement on and off campus. Karen is always looking for a way to serve her community. At school she demonstrates this through UConn’s Community Outreach and Habitat for Humanity chapters. This past semester she volunteered her spring break to travel with Habitat for Humanity to Avery County, North Carolina to collaborate in eliminating poverty housing in this area of need. Karen was able to make a positive impact on the community by working side by side with other UConn students on a house they were able to finish and hand over to a deserving family.

East of Ellie’s focus on Cause Marketing and Karen’s strong passion for Event Planning and Public Relations caught her interest in EOE. Karen is ready to absorb as much as she can from our team and is delighted to become an active part of East of Ellie as a new Events Intern!

Tori Rotermund, Social Media Intern
