In the second Lunch Lessons of the semester, the department of Business Communication welcomed three alumni guests who spoke with the students about their paths from Stevenson (or Villa Julie College) to where they are today. Lauren Humphries (left) currently works as the marketing manager for the LUNGevity Foundation, having moved to that position from her former spot at Towson University as the coordinator of marketing and special events for campus recreation. Julia Pettingill Webster, CPSM, (center) now works as the senior marketing coordinator at RK&K, a multi-discipline civil engineering consulting firm. Jake Quimby (right) works at Stevenson University as a communications specialist in the Office of Admissions, where he assists in developing, writing, and designing recruitment communications, including print and digital media.

The alums spoke about their careers and offered some advice to the 12 students attending the catered luncheon.

Senior Angelina Lewis (left) is putting her writing skills to work at Gramercy Mansion, a bed & breakfast accommodations near the Greenspring campus. Under the direction of former BizComm Jennifer Dauses Sullivan, the marketing director at Gramercy, Angelina has been blogging for the site as well as helping to prepare for the wide variety of events held there.

 

 

 

 

 

The next "Lunch Lessons" offered by the department of Business Communication will include three very near and dear alums: Julia Pettingill Webster, CPSM, Lauren Humphries, and Jake Quimby. They will visit the university for the event on Oct. 16, 2014.

Webster, who graduated in 2001,  is the senior marketing coordinator at Rummel, Klepper & Kahl, for which she manages and coordinates the writing of large company must-win transportation proposals and qualification packages. RK&K is an engineering form specializing in the transportation, environmental, construction and utilities fields.

 

Humphries, a 2008 graduate, recently took on a new career as she became the marketing manager for the LUNGevity Foundation, a non-profit close to her heart. Previously, she served for nearly four years in marketing and special events for campus recreation services at Towson University.

 

 

Jake Quimby made a start right here at Stevenson University after graduating. He works in the Admissions Office specifically with publications, and has even served as a mentor to other BizComm interns. He will share a narrative about transitioning from student to employee at Stevenson.

Ten BizComm students and the faculty in the department will join the two for the event.

The Networking and Etiquette Dinner, so-sponsored by Career Services and M.I.L.E., offered students a great chance to learn about proper meal etiquette while gathering tips for conversation, networking, and small talk.

The Event Planning and Publicity class, CM 265, enjoyed a recent visit by Patti Neumann, the CEO and founder of CITYPEEK.com of Baltimore. Neumann is an award-winning marketer and a food, wine, and hospitality influencer.

She spoke to faculty member Michelle Damareck's class about her work in sales and marketing trends and brand building, particularly in the food and wine industry.

She is also a popular columnist on these specialized topics. Neumann's blogging, digital marketing and social media strategies have won her acclaim locally and regionally. Here she is shown on the right with the BizComm faculty member.
