New Team Member Spotlight: Carolyn Kuzmin

carolynOur second recent hire is Carolyn Kuzmin, who has joined RLF as a communications manager, supporting a variety of clients through media relations and research.

Tell us a little about your work experience and what attracted you to RLF.

I graduated from Elon University this past May with a degree in marketing and a concentration in communications. Last summer, I interned for fashion designer Elie Tahari in the marketing department. During my junior and senior years in college, I was also involved in Live Oak Communications, Elon’s student run agency where I got the opportunity to work with clients and become exposed to agency life. This spring, I interned with RLF and was immediately attracted to the people, size and culture of the office as well as the work. It turned out to be the perfect fit post-grad as well, so here I am!

What’s your favorite way to spend your free time?

I grew up around horses, at shows and in the barn, so I would have to say riding is definitely one of my favorite things to do in my free time. I haven’t been lately with the post-grad craziness but I am hoping to get back into it regularly with my coach from Elon soon.

What was the last book you read?

“Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (and Other Concerns)” by Mindy Kaling. This memoir/essay collection is a hilarious and enjoyable inside look at Mindy’s life. She shares her observations on romance, friendship and Hollywood in a relatable and light-hearted way.

If you had a theme song, what would it be?

I honestly don’t think I could pick just one and it would probably change tomorrow.

If you could have dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be?

Myself in 30 years, so I can try to avoid at least some of the mistakes I’m bound to make in these early years of my life.
