A virtual welcome for our new summer intern Gillian
Kaiser Lachance Communications
Jun 10, 2020
We recently welcomed our new summer intern, Gillian Uhrynuk via Zoom. Gillian traveled all the way from Italy in the middle of the spread of Covid-19, to continue her Masters in International Business and Marketing Management from her home country of Canada. Obviously not one to shy away from a challenge, Gillian’s confidence, amazing energy and positive attitude have already made her a perfect fit with Kaiser Lachance’s culture.
But since we really only get to see Gillian virtually, we thought we’d ask her a few questions to get to know her better:
Why do you love PR?
I love to constantly learn, adapt and challenge myself. PR seemed like a perfect match as it allows to work across multiple different industries and do a variety of different tasks that require me to think strategically and creatively. I love that PR allows me to be on the precipice of change, it is exciting and every day is different. It seems like a fantastic way to begin my professional career.
What are you looking forward to in your new role at KLC?
I am so excited to learn. The firm works with vast variety of businesses within a multitude of different industries, and I am eager to learn about the history of these industries and help companies shape their future. As well, the team is incredibly diverse with a wide range of expertise. I am excited to be able to learn from everyone and get the opportunity to contribute to the firm’s success. I believe this role at KLC will allow me to grow both personally and professionally.
What is your proudest career moment to date?
It is not necessarily a career moment, but my proudest moment in my academic career was being the gold medalist for Wilfrid Laurier graduating class of 2019. It was an honour to be selected and to be recognized for all the hard work I had put in throughout the last four years.
Where would your dream trip take you?
I love traveling so much. In the past two years I have had the opportunity to travel to over 30 countries across Asia and Europe. My dream trip would probably be to Africa. I would love to go to Zambia and see Victoria Falls or go on a safari! But that is such a hard question to answer, I want to go everywhere!
Gillian, a career in PR will definitely take you places! We are thrilled you chose to start your adventure with us at KLC!
