“UGA Student. Storyteller with a passion for integrated marketing communications. Entertainment and fashion junkie. Reliable and dedicated.”
Hello! Nice to virtually meet you! My name is Mary Martin Shook and I am a current rising senior at the University of Georgia. I am pursuing a degree in public relations with a minor in fashion merchandising and a certificate in new media.
People often ask me why I chose to study Public Relations and the answer is simple. From a young age I had a curiosity that drove me to always question the why behind the what, or how things have come to be the way they are. My time studying public relations at the University of Georgia has intensified my passion for storytelling and sparked a great level of curiosity within me surrounding consumers, brands and their competition, specifically.
Last summer I had the opportunity to study abroad in London and intern with a PR agency. Currently I am a digital marketing intern for FORE Georgia, which is an online news source for the Georgia golf community. I have also developed strong social media skills as the head of marketing for the Chi Omega, Mu Beta chapter.
I am looking forward to expanding my skills in integrated marketing communications this summer as an intern at SCOUT Marketing in Atlanta.
