Elise Leben is Estipona Group’s newest hire, spending her summer with us as a social/PR intern. Here’s a little insight into what makes Elise tick. (And why she’ll likely burst into tears if you offer her a sour Skittle. Seriously. Don’t do it.)

 

Q: You previously worked as an intern for EDAWN; what would you say was your greatest takeaway from that job?

A: I believe my greatest takeaway from EDAWN was the exposure to the Reno community and all the talent we have here. I got to sit in on meetings with local start-ups, attend community luncheons, as well as work on internal projects that benefit the Northern Nevada economy, all while meeting amazing people!

 

Q: Hedgehogs, chipmunks or hairless cats? Why?

A: Chipmunks! They are cute versions of squirrels. I fear hairless cats (for obvious reasons).

 

Q: If you could redo any one year from your elementary school days, which one would it be, and why?

A: I went to a Catholic school growing up, so we would have to attend church every Friday. It was against the rules to eat during mass, and one time I snuck sour Skittles in. I ended up choking on them in the middle of the service and had to have the Heimlich done in front of hundreds of people.

 

So yeah, I would redo 5th grade.

 

Q: Why did you choose to intern at the Estipona Group?

A: I recently graduated from the University of Nevada with a degree in Journalism with an emphasis in Strategic Communications. I wanted to expand my knowledge of the field by interning at a well-known PR firm. Plus, I heard everyone was totally awesome. :)

 

(Editor’s note: We did NOT pay her to say that last thing. Nor did we threaten her with sour Skittles. Promise.)

We’ve been powerhouse networking over croissants, breakfast meat and fruit during WIN breakfasts for many years, so when our agency was asked in 2019 to become their marketing agency of record, it was an easy “yes.” There is, after all, so much to share about this 52-year-old organization — even
