Katy Vaninger joins the St. Louis-based, international consulting firm Golden Marketing Inc. as a Marketing Associate. She was offered a full-time position following her successful summer internship with the firm. In her new role, Vaninger writes press releases, researches and drafts copy for clients' electronic and print collateral, and manages several websites.
"We were at a point where we needed research and writing assistance and thought it would be a great time to create a paid summer internship program," says Michelle Golden, CEO. "Katy blew us away—her talent and great attitude were immediately apparent. She is a rising star and we're glad to have her on our team."
A Trenton, Illinois native, Vaninger is a 2008 graduate of Saint Louis University (SLU) with a B.A. in communication and a certificate in creative and professional writing. At SLU, she completed coursework in developing integrated communication campaigns. She was also a member of the Public Relations and Advertising Clubs and spent a semester abroad at the university's Madrid, Spain, campus.
She has held several other marketing and public relations intern positions where she organized survey results, wrote press documents, and assisted with fundraising event preparations.
