Meet Sophie Wilmore Sophie Wilmore has been a Marketing Assistant for Recreational Sports since August 2008. Her duties include designing flyers and print advertisements, help look for inventory items to sale in the pro shop and run the Special Events Team. Sophie is a marketing major and feels that her daily responsibilities help her to learn more about the field she has chosen for her career. She states that “my position basically serves as an internship for me. I design advertisements and complete tasks that should help me in future business/ marketing jobs.”

Ms. Wilmore handles work and academics with ease. “My on-campus job helps tremendously with my academics. My supervisor (Elizabeth Jeanes) is really flexible with me. If I need to study or work on homework for a few minutes, it’s no problem.” She adds that working off campus was not as flexible and really “appreciates working on campus.” Sophie’s experience working on campus has allowed her to “maximize my GPA and do as well as possible in school while gaining relevant experience for my career and my future.”
