Kirby does a great job communicating with marketing and brokerage team members although she works remotely from Washington State. This is a credit to her communication skills. Kirby also excels at her design skills, always seeking to improve, and will often put a creative, unique spin on pieces that could otherwise be ordinary or mundane. Kirby has also become more collaborative in seeking design feedback, which is fantastic. On the flip side, she is always ready to provide design feedback, which is also very much appreciated. Kirby does a great job, and I look forward to continue working with her in future.

 Kirby consistently delivers best-in-class work for her internal clients. Her attention to detail, eye for design, and strong communication skills position her as a top performer within the Marketing Department. One example of Kirby's work ethic is Park 12 Hundred. This massive custom project included a 4-page brochure, individual building brochures and floorplan exhibits, an amenity package, a marketing timeline, and signage. Kirby is also a pleasure to work with and her positive, calm demeanor is a huge attribute given the stressful nature of the job.

I would like to recommend Kirby Rowe for a position with your company. Her performance working as a graphic designer for Sharp Marketing proved that she would be a valuable addition to any company. I have worked with Kirby over the last year. She did graphic design, social media, and other marketing work for me on a contract basis. If I had a full time position available, I would have loved to hire her on a permanent basis. Kirby distinguished herself as a creative graphic designer with excellent communication skills.

She worked extremely well with clients and was dedicated to her work. Everything was always completed on time and in a quick and efficient manner. I believe she would be an extremely positive asset to any organization. If I can be of further assistance, or provide you with any further information, please give me a call or an email.

Kirby Rowe worked as a Marketing and Communications Intern for the summer of 2009. The Montana Lottery hires college students to be brand ambassadors at a number of fairs and other events across the state. Interns are responsible for planning and implementing the events, and staffing the Lottery’s sales booth at the events. In addition, interns interview winners and write and distribute press releases; write and edit newsletter articles, radio copy, newspaper ad copy; and assist with the Lottery’s entire public relations and marketing efforts.


One of Kirby’s jobs for the summer was to design, edit and lay out our retailer newsletter. Kirby is a very skilled and talented writer and designer, and with her leadership, the intern team wrote an informative newsletter to update the Lottery’s retailers on current events. Kirby also developed all the signage needed to advertise the Lottery’s special deals throughout the summer. We were selling a Monopoly® Scratch game that summer, and wanted to have some activity that brought attention to that game. Kirby created a very clever promotion and designed the materials needed to implement the promotion. One item that stands out in my mind is her creation of an entry box made from Monopoly® game boards. She also developed a promotion for us to give players extra play activity when they bought $10 in Lottery tickets. It is a promotion we continue to offer at our events.


On a personal basis, Kirby is very easy to work with. She is articulate, creative, hard-working, and exceeds at time management. She is a good writer, and is able to adapt her writing to various audiences. She is also a skilled graphic artist. I highly recommend her for any position where she can put her skills to good use.

This letter is to serve as my formal recommendation for Kirby Rowe. Kirby has been one of three Marketing and Communications interns for the summer of 2009. She worked under my direct supervision between May 18 and August 21, 2009. During her time here as an intern, Kirby has consistently demonstrated a strong work ethic and a dedication to success. Her efforts have produced high quality results time and time again. During her internship, Kirby assisted in the development and implementation of several events and promotions. She assisted the Lottery’s marketing team in our Summer Events tour, a variety of marketing plans and promotional campaigns and assisted players in our Winner Awareness Program. This required her to create promotional materials, organize itineraries, draft proposals and outlines, write and distribute press releases, edit winner stories on the Montana Lottery website and other various tasks as assigned.


Though Kirby was an intern, she was also in an unofficial leadership role. Many of her co-workers sought her advice and support while working at Lottery summer events. Kirby displayed comfort in her leadership role, and also offered exceptional customer service to Lottery players and retailer alike. For these reasons, I highly recommend Kirby Rowe. If you have any questions regarding Kirby’s employment with the Montana Lottery or this recommendation, please contact me.
