My job is great because everyday varies. I am able to spend my time doing everything from photography, to writing and editing, to website work. I am responsible for the management of the external school website, the dissemination and creation of the school's electronic newsletter, as well as the public relations and communications efforts of the school. I have a great deal of interaction with parents and students, as well as local journalists. I am the co-editor of the school's alumni magazine "The Beehive" and am always looking to Country Day's vast alumni community and past and current staff and faculty members to come up with most interesting story ideas.
My position falls under the school's department of external affairs and I spend a large portion of my day working together with my co-workers on a wide range of projects. It is a small department, but we all work together well and laugh a lot, which makes it fun to come to work.
