Jan 24, 2018 Brenna Finlay
The Meet the Intern series continues with our new Marketing Intern. Today, we are so excited to get to know Brenna Finlay!
What are you doing this semester at Torchlite?
This semester I am working with marketing to gain more experience in digital marketing and help Torchlite as much as possible. I am very excited to have this opportunity to develop blog posts, social media, and other marketing tactics. Additionally, I am trying to get to know everyone in the company and learn about them!
What do you like to do when you’re not at Torchlite?
When I am not at Torchlite I am at school or doing something with my sorority. I like to spend time with friends, watch sports, movies, and relax.
Where do you go to school and what are you majoring in?
I am a junior at Butler University and I have two majors. First major is Human Communication & Organizational Leadership. My second major is Strategic Communication with PR & Advertising. It is a mouthful to say, so in short Org Comm & Strat Comm. Go Dawgs!!
What’s your favorite sports team?
PATRIOTS! I also like the Red Sox, Celtics, and Butler basketball!
I was born in Boston, Massachusetts. I moved to Cincinnati, Ohio when I was 10 and live there when I am not in Indianapolis for school.
What was the last restaurant you ate at?
Yats. First time at the restaurant and I loved it!
What was the last book you read?
The Choice by Nicholas Sparks. Talk about your average, cheesy romance novel. Although, it is a good read!
What was the last item you purchased online?
A tan, corduroy skirt.
What is your favorite social media and why?
I consider myself a social media guru since I run seven social media accounts. Four of them are mine and the other three are for my sorority. My favorite is Instagram! I love being able to edit and post photos. Also, I like seeing other people’s photos and see what they are up to.
Coffee or tea?
Definitely coffee. But I could always go for an iced chai tea latte with a shot of cinnamon dolce every once in a while!
Cats or dogs?
Dogs! I have a pug and a silky terrier.
Do you like to plan ahead, or do you work better under pressure?
Definitely a plan ahead kind of person. I always plan out my entire semester and use three different planners/calendars for work, academics, and extracurricular involvements. I love being organized. However, I can also work well under pressure.
What was the last place you traveled to?
Back home to good old Cincinnati.
Pepsi products or Coke products?
Coke. Diet Coke is the best!
Mac or PC?
Mac. I love Apple products.
If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Hmm… probably Ellen DeGeneres because I love watching her show. She’s inspiring, hilarious, and down to earth!
Netflix or Hulu?
Netflix. I love Friends, Breaking Bad, How To Get Away with Murder, and Shameless.
What was the last song or album you listened to?
One Foot by Walk The Moon.
Where do you see yourself in three years?
Happy and successful. In three years I will have already graduated from Butler University (I hope). I would love to be in a marketing career and start working my way to becoming a CEO! Eventually, I want to go back to the east coast and live close to a lake or ocean. Patriots and Butler will still be my favorite teams!
