Each semester, we welcome a new intern into our world of curated gift boxes including wedding welcome gifts, bridesmaid gifts, corporate gifts, workshop gifts and basically gifts for all occasions. I’m super excited to introduce you to University of Maryland student, Keri Callaghan!
Tell us a little about yourself:
Hi! My name is Keri Callaghan and I am currently starting my sophomore year at the University of Maryland. I am a communications major with a focus in social influence with a minor in sustainability. In the summer, I live in New Jersey about 20 minutes away from New York City. In my free time, I love to lounge around with my friends, watch Netflix, or find new food places to try (I love a good meal). I'm super excited to see where this journey at Marigold & Grey takes me!
What are you most excited about?
I’m excited to learn directly how to run a small business. Due to my interest in marketing and communications especially, I feel as if this internship will allow me to work hands-on with both of these tracks! The intimacy of this setting will allow me to asks questions and genuinely learn all the behind-the-scenes details that go into such a successful small business!
Where else have you been an intern?
This is my first internship, but in the summer I work as a waitress at a pub and during the school year I work at the front desk at Chevy Chase Country Club.
What about M&G made you want to apply for the internship?
The website had a unique and emerging layout that was appealing to the eye as soon as I logged on. I’ve always been interested in creative marketing so being involved in unique projects such as the ones Marigold & Grey allows theirs interns to be a part of appealed to me.
What’s the best gift you’ve ever given? And received?
The best gift I've ever given was for my best friend's 18th birthday. I made a basket filled with 18 little gifts with a note in regards to the significance of each gift. The best gift I received was a heated blanket because I love to be warm and cozy under a blanket.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
In five years, I want to be working in NYC at a big marketing or communications firm working directly in creative marketing or food marketing. I'd love to live in an apartment with my best friends in either Hoboken or the city!
