Meet the Interns 

Five bright Westminster students have joined the Westminster College marketing office as interns for the 2011-2012 school year, learning about real-world marketing and providing support to the marketing staff.  Glad to have you on the team, marketing interns! 

Ben Jones '14
Internship Focus: Marketing Strategy

  My name is Benjamin Jones, but my friends call me Ben, Benny, or BenJammin. Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, I love cooking, eating, and singing in my car. I am majoring in Transnational Studies and Spanish and haven’t quite figured out what to do with my life. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be working the Westminster’s Marketing Office and enjoy exploring the strategies the college uses to market and brand itself.   

Elyssa Mann '14
Internship Focus: Marketing E-Newsletter Development

  My name is Elyssa Mann. I'm from Oklahoma City, but I've previously lived in Germany, Florida, and I was born in Plattsburgh, New York. I love rock music, Chinese food, and books about serial killers. I despise country music, avocado, and movies that don't have a happy ending. I'm a psychology major, and I plan to go into Forensic Psychology if my boss doesn't convince me to go into Marketing. I am a Grammar Nazi. One of my other great loves is writing, but I have yet to truly finish a single story, because I know that they will never be quite as perfect as I would like them to be.  

Audrey Sharp '13
Internship Focus: Leadership Magazine

  My name is Audrey Sharp. I am a native of Columbia, Missouri. I was raised a Missouri Tiger but decided to become a Blue Jay towards the end of my senior year of high school! I am also member of Kappa Alpha Theta, Epsilon Iota at Westminster. I enjoy music, photography, eating, and running. I can't stand scary movies, cucumbers, or typos. I am a Journalism major, and I hope to work for a home magazine in a big city after graduation. I also have a passion for service projects and non-profit organizations on the side. I love to write and take pictures; the best feeling is getting to put the two together for a meaningful story.  

Sean Peterson '12
Internship Focus: Marketing Analytics

  My name is Sean Peterson, I am a senior from St. Louis, Missouri but was born in Simi Valley, California, a suburb of Los Angeles.  In my four years, I  have met so many great and interesting people through my involvement in the Westminster Men's Soccer team, the Kappa Alpha Order, Student Ambassadors, and the Student Athletic Advisory Committee.  As a Business Administration major with a Marketing focus, I hope to find a job in advertising, public relations, or really any other marketing related field.  On a more personal note I have a great passion for playing, discovering, and listening to all types of different music, I love to travel and also kick back and enjoy the company of my friends.  


Katy Eden '13
Internship Focus: Marketing and Web Stories

  My name is Katelyn (Katy) Eden and I'm from Edmond, Oklahoma. I'm a junior and an English Creative Writing major. I absolutely love being a Blue Jay and being a part of the Westminster community! I'm an officer in Kappa Alpha Theta, a student ambassador, a Remley Women's Center intern (going on 2 years now!), and I'm working as assistant to the fabulous English department. In all my spare time, I love late-night runs to get Haagen Dazs ice cream, shopping in vintage shops in Columbia, listening to Led Zeppelin with the windows down, and watching cheesy chick flicks with my gal pals.
