Q&A With a Merritt Group-er: Get to Know Brooke McClary

What do you do at Merritt Group?

I am currently an intern working across the cybersecurity and government practice groups. This is my first time in an agency, so I’m busy learning the ropes. Day-to-day, I assist in everything from social media planning, to pitching reporters, to basic account management for a variety of clients.

Who do you love to follow on Twitter or Instagram and why?

Washingtonian Magazine (@washingtonianmag), BYT (@brightestyoungthings) and Edible DC (@edible_DC) are the publications I follow on Instagram to keep up with trends and the newest D.C. hot spots. I also follow @happyhensandhighlands because Highland Cows are completely adorable and grossly underappreciated.

Q&A With a Merritt Group-er: Get to Know Neeka Eghbali

 

What do you do at Merritt Group?

I’m a summer intern working on a variety of client and creative projects.

What’s your greatest moment — whether in work, school or marketing/PR — so far?

My greatest moment in PR so far is landing an internship at Merritt Group and being able to work with my friends and former VT PRSSA colleagues, Katie Pesek and Melanie Ford! I am a public relations major and although I’ve held internships in the past, this is my first at a PR firm. I really wanted to apply what I’ve learned in the classroom to a real-world setting, and now I get that chance. It has been incredibly exciting to say the least.

I’m a senior graphic designer in the marketing services group.

What’s your greatest moment — whether in work, school or marketing/PR — so far?

My greatest moment at Merritt Group was when our creative team did the branding for AdWeek DC. We conceived everything from the theme down to the collateral. It was a huge success and a great case study. It was nice to be able to attend an event that was utilizing designs we created.
