About the Job

As the Marketing and Communications intern, I have many responsibilities. I run Storage Solutions’ social media accounts, write and publish blogs. In addition, I also work in Salesforce Pardot drafting external emails, creating company newsletters, and building landing pages for the Storage Solutions website, just to name a few! Storage Solutions has allowed me to grow personally and professionally and I am very grateful for my time here. As an intern, I have gained new perspectives from my coworkers and more knowledge on the material handling industry as well as my field of study.

More About Maria

I am from Indianapolis, IN but I go to school at Loyola University Chicago. This fall I will be a junior studying Marketing and Supply Chain Management. During the summer I love to travel with friends and family. For the first half of this summer I studied abroad in Rome, Italy at the John Felice Rome Center. I had an incredible experience and I learned so much both in and outside of the classroom.

During the school year I serve as the Director of Operations for my sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma. To stay active I participate in intramural soccer with my friends. I also participate Loyola’s Dance Marathon that benefits Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. On the weekends, I love to spend time with friends and if the weather is nice, we hangout by the lake at Loyola beach. Working at Storage Solutions this summer allowed me to gain real world experience that I will be able to apply in my future endeavors.
