Who are you interning under, what do they have you do, and out of all your responsibilities, which is your favorite/most interesting?

I will be interning this summer under Marc Healy and will be helping with Element’s brand awareness and different social media aspects. I really enjoy the digital and social media side of Marketing, although I do look forward to exploring more of the analytical side as well.

Where do you go to school and what is your major?

I currently attend the University of Tampa and major in Marketing with a minor in Public Relations.

How did you first become interested in your field of study?

When I was first introduced to the idea of pursuing a career in Marketing by my academic advisor, I was immediately drawn to the idea of having a creative outlet to build meaningful and quality content in relation to digital marketing and different social media aspects as that is something that I most intrigued by within the marketing field.

Have you interned here before, if not, have you interned elsewhere?

This is my first internship and I’m beyond thrilled to be working for such an incredible company.

do you have any pets?

I have a five-year-old yellow lab named Dallas and we love to go to Aroma Joes together and walk around our neighborhood.

if you could go to dinner with anyone, ALIVE OR DEAD, who would it be? why?

I would love the opportunity to go to dinner with my Uncle Tim because, unfortunately, we never had the chance to meet and I need to hear all of his wild stories about my dad when he was a kid.

if you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would you go, why, and who would you take with you?

I have many countries on my travel bucket list at the moment, but Greece has to be at the top of the list. My best friend and I love the movie Mamma Mia so for her and me to experience that lifestyle, just like in the movie, would be incredible. 


TikTok is probably the app that I use the most strictly due to its addictive nature, however, my favorite would probably be Hulu as it is the only streaming app that has my all-time favorite show, One Tree Hill.


I would really love to try skydiving and although I do have a fear of heights, I think skydiving will help me overcome that fear for sure!


My favorite season is definitely summer because I’m able to be home in Maine with my friends and family and enjoy the beautiful weather.

THANKS FOR THE INTERVIEW and your hard work, Kate!

digital and animation specialist

An artist first, Chris can be found creating and animating cartoons both for fun and at work. A recent graduate, Chris joined The Element Group after earning his degree in Digital Arts with a focus in Animation from Northeastern University. Before becoming a full-time employee, Chris interned at Element and worked as a freelance animator and musician. Currently, he remains very active in the animation and music community, helping to run animation collaborations and competitions involving one hundred plus participants. When he is not “in his element” animating, or producing music on Spotify, Chris enjoys listening to Mac Miller and Drake while vacationing in Nassau, Bahamas. His mission statement is a strong reminder to just go for it, Chris states: “If you make art, you’re not an aspiring artist: you are an artist! The same goes for any other industry, don’t let anything hold you back.” His advice would be to take chances.
