Meet Intern Payton Switzer!


Hey all!

My name is Payton Switzer, and I was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan. However, after living in

Cary, North Carolina for 15 years, I can confidently say I am a Southerner at heart. In my free

time, which seems to be in abundance these days, I enjoy watching the Carolina Hurricanes play,

eating avocado toast, paddle boarding at Jordan Lake, creating digital artwork, organizing

anything and everything, and drive-in movies.

While living in Michigan, my favorite hockey team was the Detroit Red Wings, but since moving to North Carolina, I quickly switched my allegiance to the Carolina Hurricanes. Upon hearing that the Hurricanes were one of Intrepid Marketing’s clients, along with many other groups and teams that I am familiar with, I was intrigued. From Park West Village, Duke, NCFC and the NC Courage, etc., I knew this Marketing group was one that I wanted to be a part of.

Upon starting college, marketing wasn’t my first choice. However, after my first

semester as a nursing student, I knew nursing wasn’t the right fit. Speaking with my advisor

proved to be extremely helpful, as it led me to Marketing. With two years in Greenville at East

Carolina University under my belt, I decided to transfer to the much cooler temperatures of

Appalachian State University in Boone. At Appalachian State University, I will study Digital Marketing, and I could not be more excited! Selecting Digital Marketing as my major

was, in part, inspired by Intrepid.

I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to be a Digital Marketing Intern at Intrepid this

summer. During a pandemic, nothing is for certain, and I am so grateful that Intrepid could adapt

to offering a flexible internship to advance my learning experience.
