Intern of the Week:

Courtney Fangmann


Courtney comes to Mass Appeal via Berklee College of Music…. A world renowned music school that encourages hands on learning and pushes their students to be the best they can be. Courtney brings to Mass Appeal an unparalleled enthusiasm both for what she is learning and experiencing as an MP & E major and for life in general. Courtney’s personality shines through in all that she does and if you ask her even about her last haircut, you’ll see even her stylist thought so! Courtney has been doing a great job covering the posts and updates from Mass Appeal Entertainment each Thursday and Friday. She is definitely pairing her love of music with her interest in the business of music. There’s no doubt that Courtney gives her all to what she loves and I am sure because of this, she will be happy and successful.

Intern of the Week:

Hillary Gove

Hillary Gove is not your typical intern and she isn’t our typical student intern either. She graduated from Husson College, has a full time job as a Marketing Coordinator for John Hancock and came to us looking for new media marketing experience in an exciting industry. From her recent ideas and accomplishments here, it appears that she is getting just that! She is creative, enjoys a challenge, works extremely well independently, as well as on a team, and handles her projects with the utmost professionalism. You know what they say about those quiet folks though… most likely there is a hidden side to them! From what I heard, Hillary is no different… I only hope this other side will join us in the office, out-loud someday

You must beware of the sneaky side to Natasha who likes to take candid photos of the other team members and post them on Facebook!
