Tiesta Tea

During the summer of 2013 I worked as a PR Specialist and Media Coordinator at Tiesta Tea. Tiesta Tea is a loose-leaf tea company based out of Chicago, Illinois. Their all-natural, loose-leaf teas are packed with high quality fruits and herbs from all around the world. Their goal is to take the confusion out of tea by organizing the teas into five functional lines that explain the effects they have on the drinker (Energizer, Slenderizer, Relaxer, Immunity and Eternity). They believe this simple approach, along with unique flavors will appeal to the masses and raise awareness for loose-leaf tea.

While at Tiesta Tea I worked on writing individual tea descriptions for almost 50 different teas, I created a year of monthly email campaigns and wrote copy for each of those. I wrote blog posts, helped plan events, wrote copy for handouts and brochures. I also reached out to numerous online bloggers and sent them samples to write reviews about our teas on their blogs. My last task as an intern was to write numerous news releases and reach out to journalists around the Chicago Land Area.

Honey Bee Weddings

During the Summer of 2013, I had the opportunity of interning for Misse Daniel at Honey Bee Weddings. Honey Bee Weddings is a wedding planning company based in Chicago, offering a variety of services from full planning to day of coordination. As an intern I spent each day differently. Some tasks included: reviewing documents, making confirmations leading up to events, building timelines, contacting venders, writing blog posts, putting together invitations, and more. I spent my time going to client meetings and was invited to different events throughout the city representing Honey Bee Weddings.

I also focused my time at Honey Bee weddings on PR and Marketing. I created a media kit for the company’s blog and created a marketing plan for the company’s social media accounts. Over the course of my internship I successfully assisted in coordinating eight weddings including, Christian, Indian, Jewish and Greek denominations. Once my internship came to an end, Misse added me to her team as an assistant, coordinating weddings throughout the city.
