Hi! I’m Rachel Hartwick. I’m a journalism: strategic communication major at Ohio University’s E. W. Scripps School of Journalism. I’m also pursuing a minor in marketing, a global leadership certificate and a specialization in creative writing.
I’m a writer, digital strategist, creative thinker, innovator, news junkie and coffee addict. You can usually find me running or biking, re-watching episodes of Parks and Recreation, or searching for the perfect craft beer.
I recently finished up a summer internship for Rad Campaign. There, I assisted in digital strategy specifically for nonprofits and progressive clients. I helped with social media and blog writing for Craig Newmark, founder of craigslist and craigconnects. Post-internship, I worked remotely from Ohio on social media recommendations for Inova Health Foundation.
I got hands-on nonprofit work when I interned for the Cincinnati Homeless Coalition in summer 2015. In addition to covering events, protests and marches, I wrote bi-weekly feature stories on people experiencing poverty. It’s there that I decided I wanted to work for socially responsible companies and play a part in changing the world.
I believe in tackling life with a positive attitude and an open mind. I’m always looking for new opportunities in the public relations, advertising or any sort of digital marketing field. Let’s chat.
