Hello, my name is Cassy Heitman! I am originally from Williamsburg, Iowa but have been studying in the Quad Cities for the past three years at St. Ambrose University. I will be entering my senior year this fall as a Strategic Communications and Public Relations major.
At Ambrose I have explored the comm department's TV and radio stations, the music department, and specifically the marching band program that started from scratch my freshman year. I have been part of the band all three years and I now manage all media & marketing while also continuing to play tenor saxophone in the band.
Last summer I had an internship at the Amana Colonies Convention Center and Visitors Bureau where I helped plan Wurst Festival, Oktoberfest, and the Bike Ride of Iowa County (BRIC). Since then, I have increased many of my skills in the PR field and I have also found a love for spending time at the Amana wineries and their other cute, little shops. I hope to fall in love with the shops all over the Grinnell area with this new internship at the Chamber of Commerce and hope to see my PR skills challenge! I'm excited to see where this summer takes me & I can't wait to learn everything there is to know about Grinnell!!
Grinnell is lucky to have you!
