Hey, I’m Peyton Neely! I’m a West Virginia native who found herself in the beautiful state of North Carolina. I’m a graduate of West Virginia University at Parkersburg where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. I’m a current graduate student at West Virginia University. Go Mountaineers! Here, I study Data Marketing Communications and with an online program, I have the flexibility to enjoy growing my professional network.
During my undergraduate career, I took the employment opportunity with The Marietta Times as their Education Beat Reporter. I learned communications skills as well as writing skills to build the foundation for who I am today. Marietta, Ohio, located right across the bridge from my hometown, Williamstown, W.Va., is full of rich history and community functions that I never knew existed until I became a reporter. As a reporter, I knew I could be the person who represents a company’s products or services in a positive way. That’s how I ended up pursuing a Master of Science degree in Data Marketing. I have learned the in’s and out’s to online marketing and the important metrics that go into building your online presence. I hope to utilize my knowledge and education while interning with Intrepid Marketing Group. This opportunity is also helping me learn a brand new area. I know as a journalist, I learned skills I couldn’t have ever gained in college. I hope to gain marketing skills that school can’t teach me while at Intrepid!
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my perfect dogs and exploring the city. Raleigh has so much to offer and I’m just getting started! I can’t believe the amount of activities there are here. I also enjoy watching Netflix, attending any sort of live music concert, and attending local events throughout the area. I am also an active member of the Raleigh Jaycees.
