Meet the Interns at the Chamber!

The Greater Albion Area Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau currently has two interns from Albion College. They are working hard to help support the endeavors of the Chamber, so here is a little bit about them.

Kelly Guadarrama – Marketing Intern

Kelly is from Houston, Texas, and currently a senior at Albion College. She is majoring in Political Science with a minor in Marketing. Her interest in marketing stems from her interests “in using marketing to advance my goals in business.”

Currently, as the Marketing Intern for the Albion Chamber, Kelly is engaging  on the Chamber’s social media platforms to create a better online presence. She also helps create written and visual content for newsletters, press releases, and promotional material, as well as assisting in planning Chamber events.

“I look forward to engaging more with the local community to create events and partnerships to strengthen the Chamber’s relationship with businesses and residents. I also hope to grow the value of business to the student body of Albion College, creating a collaborative atmosphere and relationship.”

After graduation, Kelly plans to apply the skills she learned at Albion College and at the Albion Chamber to work closely with the City of Houston.

Kevie Lamour – Government Affairs and Advocacy Intern

Kevie is an international student from Cap-Haitian, Haiti, and currently a junior at Albion College. She is double-majoring in Political Science and Economics, and pursuing a Legal Studies Certificate at Albion College. Kevie is a part of the Ford Institute, as well as the Honors Program, and the Curtis Institute. She is the Vice-President of the Black Student Alliance (BSA), and the African and Caribbean Student Union (ACSU). Kevie is “interested in public service and community engagement, as well as advocacy, policy, and law-related topics.”

As the Government Affairs and Advocacy Intern at the Greater Albion Chamber of Commerce, Kevie is helping create an advocacy program and advocacy events for local Albion businesses and community. She is looking forward to implementing an advocacy program that will allow local businesses to have a bigger voice, help inform the public and business owners on how to best advocate, as well as help equip them with the necessary tools to do so.

“I am hoping to find ways to help small businesses thrive. I am excited about the possibility of getting to know the Albion community more and participating in fun community events.”

After Albion, Kevie is considering either going to law school or pursuing an MBA, maybe even both. Wherever she ends up though, Kevie wants to pursue a path of advocacy.
