This summer, we had a handful of fantastic interns working with us at our headquarters in Boston. They were spread out over multiple departments in the company; finance, marketing, design, and wholesale. I’m sure you saw them pop up sporadically on our Instagram page ;-) Each intern had the opportunity to work on projects individually as well as collaborating together. We hope to give the interns who join our program a multifaceted experience to provide insight into life beyond college. Aas the summer draws to a close, they are sadly gearing up to head back to school. We will miss them, but wish them the best of luck in the upcoming semester! Here is a little bit about each of them and what they did this summer.
College: Vanderbilt (Undergrad), Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management (Graduate)
Major: Human and Organizational Development, Corporate Strategy (Undergrad), MS Finance (Graduate)
Position at SC: Finance intern
The scoop on you (fun fact): I'm from Kerrville, TX!
Go to outfit: I wear my Sara Campbell Sheri pants all the time. Now that I'm in grad school the dress code is a bit more professional. My Sheri pants are great for class or events because they look dressy but are so comfortable!
Projects you worked on this summer: I worked on a few different things, but some of the highlights include putting together various statements of financial performance, looking into locations for new stores, and reviewing and condensing lease information.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years: In five years, I hope to be travelling a lot. Being from a small town in Texas, there are so many places I want to see. Working in Boston this summer really confirmed that I love exploring and living in new places, so I hope my work will allow for that!
One thing you learned this summer: I was really inspired by Sara every day. Watching her at Sara Campbell taught me a lot about work ethic and the drive and persistence it takes to run your own company-- I aspire to be able to do that someday.
Favorite memory: When the office gave me lemon squares (my favorite dessert) for my birthday!

On our way down from Boston, we stopped at our Hingham boutique, my hometown, to see their sidewalk sale. There we met some lovely customers, and took some pictures for Instagram. Then we got on the road again and made the trek down to the Cape. While we were in Chatham we celebrated their first birthday, took pictures in Sara Campbell clothes along the main street, and we even stopped for a delicious lunch at The Captain’s Table.
