Alumni Profile

Kristy Whitwell, Class of 2010 Creative Marketing and Events Manager, DiscoverReady

“Though big companies are great, consider thinking outside the box. I’ve been able to advance my skills because of my company and department’s smaller size. In a bigger company, I would not have had the same opportunities.”

A native of St. Louis, Kristy now calls NYC home. As the Creative Marketing and Events Manager for legal services firm DiscoverReady, Kristy designs events and campaigns from the ground up and puts them into action.

Her department is relatively new and Kristy has been able to develop and advance her skills through lots of hands-on opportunities. She cites LIM College’s Advertising, International Marketing and Public Relations courses as being particularly relevant to her current activities.

While she was a student at LIM, Kristy interned at Oscar de la Renta and Seventeen magazine.
