Hi, there! I’m Lindsay Dressen, an aspiring writer, digital media junkie, and have a high interest in media relations. I am a senior magazine journalism major with a minor in sociology with a concentration in gender studies at Drake University in Des Moines, IA., graduating in December 2013.
Currently, I am working at Dwolla, an emerging mobile and online payment network headquartered in Des Moines, as their communications builder intern. I started with Dwolla in February 2013, and will continue to intern through my last semester at Drake gaining knowledge of media relations, brand development and evangelism, marketing, and general communications.
I have been involved with the award-winning Drake Magazine since my freshman year. My junior year I took a leap, and accepted the position as Executive Editor. I helped revamp the online version, and our team won the 2012 online magazine Pacemaker award for Drakemagazine.com.
I have had various internships and have worn several different hats in the process of my college career having internships with the Chanhassen Rotary, Collegelifestyles.org, BringMeTheNews, and Modern Luxury. Through all of the experiences I have grown as a journalist, and as an individual. As a Minnesota native, I stuck around the Midwest for my two first summers of college. In the summer of 2012, I traveled to Chicago to explore the world of digital media with Modern Luxury as their digital assistant.
