Abby Underwood is the Serendipity’s Marketing and Events Intern.
How long have you been with Serendipity Media?
At the end of June 2019, it will be one year!
What’s your favorite part of your job?
The knowledge I have gained during my internship here tops any job I’ve had or anything I’ve learned in school, to be completely honest. I am so grateful for that, and it’s given me the confidence I need to start my career, wherever that may be!
Shout-out to the amazing team of women at Serendipity Media. Being an intern can be intimidating, but they have created such a positive and comfortable work environment that I always look forward to being around.
What do you love most about working with Serendipity Media clients?
Since I mainly work on West Michigan Woman, my favorite thing is being a part of all the inspiring events and hearing so many stories of really influential women in our community. I have met some really amazing people that help make these events possible.
What are your top three tips for businesses and companies?
- Take risks! Be innovative and change things up.
- Company culture is everything, so take the steps that are necessary to make it great.
- Hire interns. We have lots of ideas. 😜
In a game of truth or dare, which are you more likely to pick and why?
Truth. Only because I’m lazy and doing a dare usually involves getting up.
What’s your go-to drink?
Currently, my favorite is an Aperol Spritz. It’s really light and low in alcohol content, so it’s perfect for day drinking in the summer. My go-to drinks year-round are a Sauvignon Blanc or a spicy margarita.
It’s the weekend! What are you typically doing on a Friday night?
On a Friday night, you’ll probably find me out for dinner and drinks or having a lowkey night at home with my boyfriend and our Pug. Now that it’s really starting to warm up, we’ll spend a lot of time at our house on the lake or going north to our hometown, Traverse City, to visit friends and family. My weekends are really never the same!
