Meet The Women of the Company

summer 2019 intern picnic

summer 2019 intern picnic

Last summer I embarked on a journey that changed the entire culture of Auden & Company. Gathered around my dining room table sat 5 lovely interns from the Cleveland area! I opened up my business to 5 students who spent the summer embraced in the imperfections of my business, the messiness of my life and the lovely chaos of entrepreneurship. This year marks one full year since starting our company internship program which included a fall internship and a spring internship and now we are making a full circle back to a summer internship program.

This summer’s interns oozes girl power to the 100th degree! When interviewing and selecting my team for the internship, I really prioritize personality traits as individuals and as a group. So when we are all together that the team work just flows easily. This group of women clicked right away, sharing stories and hinting at their awesome sarcastic nature!


Here at Auden & Company, we are all about collaborating to deliver one of kind of branding experiences for our clients while empowering the entrepreneurial age we are in! This spring I decided to bring on interns for a second cohort, in hopes to mentor each and every one of them! Our company interns gain valuable experience by helping us in various departments of small business ownership My intention is to create I am striving to create a meaningful internship program where participants not only are exposed to the inner workings of a business but are able to network with peers and businesses. 

WHO ARE THE COMPANY INTERNS 

Our company interns are kind, creative thinkers, friendly and hard workers. They have a fun attitude that leads them to jump into tasks and collaborate freely with me, clients, and one another. 

WHAT DO THEY DO?

 I preach that all interns no matter what their department is should see what it is like to wear multiple hats. With that being said, our interns have different tasks depending on their department. Here at the company, we have editorial, marketing, social media, photography, business administration, & graphic design interns! Some tasks can range from developing blog content to brainstorming clients content to planning out what goes into our client welcome packet!

I am a student at Liberty University studying Graphic Design and Business with a minor in Global Studies.

What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not at Auden & Co.?

When I am not at Auden & Co., I love to spend time trapesing around looking for thrifted goods including clothes, furniture, artwork, kitchenware, camera equipment, books, and general odds & ends. I love to find eclectic treasures that have unique characteristics.

Eat Pray Love because I do a lot of all three.

If you had a warning label, what would yours say?

Notice: Be Groovy or Leave OR Warning: Will turn Oreos into breakfast

If you could start any kind of secret society, what would it be?

My secret society would definitely be something resembling a thrifting swap, essentially a secret swap meet. It would be secret society operation that functioned with members who were also avid thrifters and collectors, there could be local outings at garage sales and secondhand stores, then afterwards they share the treasures they found. We would be known as “The Bargain Brigade.”

If you had a time machine, what time period would you visit and why?

I would love to visit the time period when the New Testament was written. Israel is a place I am fascinated with and plan on going someday, but what it must have been to be a part of the bustling country during the time of major religious events. I grew up learning these stories and have grown into studying more texts and historical events of that time period. I would love the opportunity to see how life looked like then during that time, outside of the traditional artistic depictions seen in museums and churches, to talk first hand with the people during that time and be in the midst of the chatter and commotion of a culture I’ve only had the opportunity to read about.
