I spent time as an intern at Pinkston pitching national and regional media, writing newsletters and op-eds for clients and building relationships with national and regional journalists.
I was tasked with quickly learning, then fully understanding various fields—Oklahoma state politics, the logistics of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and how it was situated to be legally challenged.
I was able to obtain hits from national publications such as USA Today and Bloomberg Law from pitching and relationship-building, which began with industry-specific research.
My ability to discuss the details of my work is limited, but please reach out to learn ore about my work for Pinkston.
