Julia D’Allessandro–University of Rhode Island, Senior
My name is Julia D’Allessandro and I have just begun my senior year at The University of Rhode Island. While attending college I am living in Narragansett, RI with two of my best friends and my Bernese mountain dog, Denali. I will be graduating this spring with a major in Communication Studies and a minor in Business, as my main interests are in public relations, business development, and management. I graduated from Thayer Academy in Braintree, MA in 2011 where I was a three sport athlete, art major, team manager, and volunteer. Throughout my high school and college career I have volunteered at non-profit organizations to help maintain facilities, raise money, recruit new volunteers, and plan events. Last year while I was at college, I put my experience into action and began working for a small chain of local coffee shops. I was hired to help with business efficiency and sales, but my position quickly advanced to also being manager, head of marketing, and advertisement. I even dabbled in real estate when I facilitated the purchase and sale of one of the stores. I am very excited for the opportunity to intern at the Goodwin Group this fall and to work alongside, and learn from, such admirable and hardworking people.
Olivia Snuffer–Curry College, Junior
My name is Olivia Snuffer and I was born and raised in Walpole, Massachusetts. I am just starting my junior year at Curry College in Milton, MA. I am majoring in Business Management, with a strong concentration in Marketing. Along with my major, I am also minoring in Communications. Within my Communications minor, I am primarily focusing on Public Relations. I have excellent experience in leadership and teamwork, having been a team leader in many of the teams I have taken part in at Curry. Most of my skills and experiences come from the position I had as a Management Teacher’s Assistant for my whole sophomore year. I learned more than I could have ever imagined. Working with Students just a year under me, and taking on that leadership role, really allowed me to evaluate and learn exactly what it takes to be an effective leader. I also volunteer in my community with the Walpole Ponds Committee of Walpole, MA. Being a resident of the town, I knew it was a great opportunity to give back to my wonderful community. I have been volunteering with the committee since 2010 and am still volunteering today. I have been babysitting what seems like my whole life, with a great love of working with children. I love music and attend concerts frequently. I love traveling, being outdoors (hikes, fishing, etc.), writing, and photography. I am excited and eager to learn and build great experience here at Goodwin Group PR. I know that having the opportunity to work alongside the Goodwin team will allow me to leave this internship with many skills that better me both professionally and in general.

The Bill Belichick foundation hosted its first ever event, The Hall of Fame Huddle, which featured a panel discussion with some well known Patriots players. With the help of Scott Zolak as the emcee and former Patriots players Troy Brown and Tedy Bruschi on the panel alongside Coach Belichick the event was fun from start to finish. Great Patriots moments were discussed, along with some humorous locker room and team meeting stories, and the panel broke down some old Troy and Tedy game film to show why they were so dominant at their respective positions.
