Meet the Team
From left to right: Megan, Antoinette, Sam, Lauren, Cait
All of the girls are Communication Studies majors at The College of New Jersey.
Megan is a senior Communication Studies major in the public and mass track and a Health Communication Concentration at TCNJ. She recently planned the first event of a Speakers Series for the new Public Health Communication Club at TCNJ which she was part of founding. Next semester she will be interning with the Family Resource Network for events. Upon graduation in the spring she would like to work in the public health field and make a positive impact on people’s lives.
Antoinette is in the organizational track. She has worked in many fields and volunteered with the TelecomPioneers since she was eight. With her mom she has helped plan nonprofit events from creating a team for a race for the cure, painting maps on school playgrounds and sewing hug a bears for children in need. She is looking forward to graduating this December. After graduation she wants to get a job with an event planning firm and continue in this field.
Sam is a senior in the public and mass track. She has planned and directed events throughout her community including a fundraiser for the local episcopal church. She is looking forward to graduating this August. Upon graduation she hopes to continue in the field of event planning.
Lauren is a junior in the public and mass track. She is also a Spanish and Women’s & Gender Studies Minor. She is president of an on-campus organization and has acted as its event planner for the past two years. Lauren has brought speakers to TCNJ campus and has planned fundraising and educational events as well. She is still not extremely certain of what she wants to pursue as a career after graduation, but is strongly considering continuing in the event planning field.
Cait is a junior in the organizational track, and a minor in Professional Writing. She was the client liaison for this event. She has been working on event planning projects since her freshman year of high school and has been an active volunteer for the American Cancer Society. Her goal for the future includes working for the American Cancer Society, and to one-day open a small public relations firm for non-profit organizations to use at an affordable price.
