If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you!

Grace Meyer, one of McGregor’s Marketing and Communications Interns, assisted our Chief Marketing Officer and our Director of Philanthropy in telling McGregor’s story this summer.

Throughout the course of her internship, Grace worked on several major marketing projects for McGregor. A few highlights include writing blogs and social media posts to recap events and share tips for aging successfully with seniors and caregivers, interviewing McGregor Foundation grantees & McGregor employees to write articles, publishing an article in Northeast Ohio Boomer magazine, and compiling highlights from McGregor’s history into an interactive timeline on the website history page. Grace also participated in the LeadingAge Summer Enrichment Cohort, a nationwide group of interns within the Senior Living industry who met weekly online for networking and professional development presentations.

Grace is a rising senior at Elon University in North Carolina, where she studies Strategic Communications with minors in Psychology and Adventure-Based Learning. Following graduation, Grace does not have a plan in place yet, but she specified that “I know that I want to explore something within the field of communications, preferably at a nonprofit organization.”

No matter where she ends up, Grace is glad that she spent her summer here. She says, “my internship at McGregor has given me a network of individuals that I can continue to reach out to in the future for guidance. Also, having diverse experiences has helped me to explore my strengths that will be valuable to know when applying for my next job.”

Thank you, Grace, for choosing McGregor and for all your good work this summer. We wish you continued success as you finish school and begin your future career.
