During the summer of 2009, I had the opportunity to work as an intern at the Montana State Lottery headquarters in Helena, Montana. During my time working for the Lottery, I was able to design promotional materials, interview winners, and write press releases. I was in charge of designing the quarterly newsletter that is sent to all Lottery retailers in Montana. One of my press releases was published by national media outlets, including The Chicago Tribune. I was also able to brainstorm summer field marketing promotions and plan  the details, and then participate in marketing events across the state. As part of a plan to expand social media marketing efforts, I implemented company Twitter account and wrote the company procedures for managing the page.
