Hello and welcome to my ePortfolio!

I'm Gwen Fernau and I'm a senior Communication Management and Design major at Ithaca College. I hail from Clinton, Massachusetts and am in love with the New England area. Two summers ago I had the opportunity to work in the great city of Boston as an events intern at The Castle Group, a communications firm that handles both events and public relations. I gained invaluable experience at Castle, working closely with our entire team to research, plan, and execute the various events. By giving me meaningful tasks and plenty of responsibility, the folks at Castle left me with a clear insight into what it takes to work in a professional firm. And I left them a little something of my own in return! As an independent project I collaborated with Castle's partner company MK3 Creative to make a video about "A Day in the Life" of a Castle intern ( I've always had a passion for photography, and making videos is just as fun.

Most recently I joined the biotechnology firm Biogen Idec for a US Public Relations internship that afforded me a window into in-house PR, healthcare PR, and how a global organization's PR team must operate. I completed multiple research projects and visual design components for my team, working with both internal and external elements. I produced multiple articles for our company intranet, which involved interviewing and photographing various employees. I also gained experience with answering a media line during my day-to-day activities. 

I'm eager to continue my learning in the "real world," and to pursue a career in the public relations and corporate communications fields.
