Account Executive & Event Specialist
At RW Jones, Samantha works with a variety of clients to help them gain valuable media placements. This work largely consists of interviewing faculty members; writing pitch letters, op-eds and trend stories; identifying target media outlets for placement; and corresponding with members of the media. As the event specialist, she also oversees all aspects of event planning and management. She is responsible for leading the coordination and execution of both internal and external events.
Samantha began her full-time career at RW Jones in 2018, one week after graduating from Waynesburg University with a bachelor's degree in public relations and a minor in journalism. She first joined the team as an intern in the summer of 2016.
In addition to her everyday work, Samantha serves as the regional CSO (chief snack officer) in Pittsburgh. Outside of the office, she spends much of her time thrifting and enjoying life with her black Labrador Retriever, Nelly.
