We have stayed in touch with Brett over the years. She is currently the Director of Community at WeWork, Boston and Cambridge. Brett graduated from BU’s School of Communications. Positions at Big Brothers Big Sisters of MA, Paint Nite and Education First led Brett to her current exciting position at WeWork.
When she was a senior at Newton South, Brett had already gained retail experience through her after-school job and thought that an internship at a magazine would give her additional business exposure. Brett was placed at a new magazine where she worked with the marketing team, using Excel and speaking to potential clients.
Through this experience, she realized that her interests evolved to journalism and communications. In her letter of recommendation, the Advertising Sales Manager wrote, ” Brett’s strong work ethic and dedication, her professional demeanor and her desire and ability to learn anything and everything we threw her way, made us view her as more than just an intern, but rather, part of the office and a member of our team.
