Hi all! My name is Mary Katherine and I am the new Spring intern here at HEC-TV. I am a recent graduate form the University of Missouri – St. Louis. My degree is in communications with a certificate in public relations. Before HEC-TV I interned with the Humane Society of Missouri assisting with event planning, promotion and managing volunteers as well as helping out in their adoption center. I learned of HEC-TV through one of my professors at UMSL via guest speaker. I may not have been born in St. Louis but I have lived for most of my life and call this amazing city my home!
While not at work I enjoy spending my free time enjoying all that nature has to offer from a quick day hike in one of our many parks to week long backpacking trips in one of our National Parks. Exercise and working out is also a passion of mine for running to lifting weight to mixed martial arts all the way to yoga. The challenge of seeing all the I am capable of in the gym as well as outside is what keeps me going each day.
I was fortunate to be exposed to music and arts while I was young as well as many opportunities to learn outside the classroom. HEC-TV’s passion for educating people of all ages especially children is one of the many reasons I wanted to join this amazing team. I look forward to my time here and am lucky to be able to share it with you all!
