We’re so excited to introduce you to Heidi Ledermann, our summer communications intern. Heidi is a senior at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota in Winona, MN, where she is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Public Relations with a minor in Sport Business. Heidi hopes to one day use her degree to be the voice for organizations that are environmentally conscious and socially responsible.
Heidi has always loved exploring the outdoors. However, it wasn’t until she attended a semester-long boarding school geared towards students with an interest in environmental stewardship and outdoor leadership that she first thought about pursuing a career where she could combine her passion for the outdoors and her love of communicating with people.
Scream Agency’s status as a certified B Corporation and our long list of clients who share Heidi’s passion for conducting business in a sustainable way are two of the many reasons that Heidi chose to join the Scream family this summer.
Now let’s get to know her a little better…
What are you hoping to gain from your internship experience at Scream Agency?
I am excited to gain more real-world experience in the public relations field. I have never worked at an agency, so I am looking forward to witnessing firsthand how it differs from the organizations for which I have worked in the past. I am hoping to learn a lot from the incredible staff here and become more confident in using the various skills needed for public relations.
Where are you from and what brought you to Colorado?
I grew up in Mahtomedi, Minnesota, which is a small suburb northeast of St. Paul. I came to Colorado this summer for this internship. I am looking forward to spending time with my extended family that lives in the state and to enjoying the extensive amount of outdoor opportunities available here.
What is your favorite thing to do outdoors?
I love to nordic (cross-country) ski both competitively and recreationally. I also love to run, bike, hike, and downhill ski.
What is your favorite food?
Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food ice cream
