BizComm alum Angela Harris (class of 2008) has recently moved to a new career that, according to her, is the perfect combination of all she studied as a business communication major while at Stevenson. She is working at the National Institutes of Health in the Oxford Cambridge Scholars program, "an accelerated, individualized doctoral training program for outstanding science students committed to biomedical research careers," according to the NIH website.

Angela's work will include professional writing, design, marketing, photography, event planning and production, public relations and loads of reliance on her interpersonal skills as well. "It's everything I've always wanted to do combined into one position!" she said. Congratulations, Angela!

The department of Business Communication welcomed back three alums to its first "Lunch Lessons" of the semester on Monday, Sept. 15. This ongoing event includes students, departmental faculty, and alumni guests who enjoy a catered lunch while talking about careers, academics, and other topics.

In the photo, alums Megan Lanasa (class of 2009), Maya Shipley ('10), and Matt Johnson ('98) are seated in the front row, while current students Ike Williams, Jamal Williams, Edward Bennett,  Courtney Johnson, Peighton Perrone, Britany Post, Mollie Meeder and Lindsay Somuah (back row) joined the group as guests. "Lunch Lessons" are held two or three times a semester so that students and alums may meet, network, and socialize.

May BizComm grad Rachel Guzman (on the right in the photo) was thrilled to let us know that she just accepted a job as the Development Coordinator at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Maryland Chapter. Rachel completed one of her internships at the MS Society under the mentorship of former BizComm Katie Amos (who had herself interned there before going full time, and is shown on the left in the photo). What a triumph, Rachel, and best of luck in the new job.

BizComm grad Alex Zeidler sent us a quick "checking-in" note.  He writes: "We are about three weeks away from the Grand Opening of Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, and these past three months have probably been the most stressful but most exciting three months of my life. Juggling multiple projects and dealing with a deadline that isn't going away is one tough task, but BizComm taught me how to deal with these situations. 

I am working on projects that range from designing wall wraps for the Baltimore Orioles' and Ravens' suite to creating videos that will play on our casino floor once we open. The skills that I have brought to Horseshoe have helped me tremendously, and I can't thank this department enough!"
 
Thanks, Alex, and good luck with the opening!

BizComm alum Jess Dixon Bieber (2009) checked in with the news that she is soon to start a new job with the Fallston Group, a full-service public relations, marketing, strategic planning and brand management comany that specializes in "building, strengthening and defending reputations," according to the website. Jess' past experience with Jigsaw Marketing provided her with strong interpersonal skills, particularly in building and strengthening relationships. While at Stevenson, she was editor of The Villager and captain of Stevenson's NCAA women's lacrosse team, among other things.
