Joseph Lavis

Student and Marketing and Events Coordinator in Boone, North Carolina

Hire me

Hi, I'm Joe and I have a knack for incorporating an artistic eye when producing work related to marketing and brand development. I've spent the majority of my college career seeking and taking advantage of opportunities that allow me to master my craft and integrate all of the skillsets I have acquired over the last four years. This past summer, I spent three months interning in New York City as a Digital Marketing and Public Relations Intern for MyKlovr, a startup with educational products that use artificial intelligence. For a year and a half I have been a marketing and events coordinator atNoble Kava, a popular lounge in Boone, NC. Each of these paid positions have allowed me to integrate the abilities I've learned as both a public relations student at Appalachian State University and as an aesthetically aware artist through social media management, photography, community outreach, graphic design, media relations and other forms of marketing and PR. I've been fortunate to have several outlets that enable

me to further develop these skills and encompass my artistry with public relations leadership, board member and internship positions for arts organizations including the Appalachian Musical Theatre Ensemble, Appalachian State University's Department of Theatre and Dance and the nationally recognized arts and literature review, The Peel. In addition to my achievements in the public relations field, I have had to hold down a job at Banana Republic to supplement living costs as a financially independent young adult. This brand ambassador position solidified my interpersonal skills as well as grow my understanding of merchandising and marketing in a retail store. As I finish my studies at Appalachian State University and seek work in the professional world, I hope to find a marketing, public relations or growth development position that will allow me to cultivate my artistry, strengths and talents.
