Timberlake Media is proud to announce Vanessa Monson as our 12th recipient of the Patricia McCarty Advertising and Marketing Scholarship at Columbia College. We are proud of her achievement and the opportunity to help with her continuing studies at Columbia College.
Vanessa is a junior at Columbia College Chicago, majoring in marketing.
Her passion for marketing and advertising began when she was in high school and has continued to flourish since she moved from the suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Chicago, Illinois to continue her studies and pursue her dreams of working in the marketing industry.
As a student in the Marketing Communication Department, she has had the opportunity to intern at several different companies. Her most recent internship is currently at Allure Magazine at Conde Nast, where she’s developed an interest in publishing and entertainment.
She is a member of the Columbia College Chicago Ad Club, Columbia College Chicago Public Relations Student Society of America, and National Society of Collegiate Scholars.
Vanessa will be travelling to Prague, Czech Republic this summer with Columbia College Chicago’s Marketing Communication Department to learn about global marketing and work in collaboration with DraftFCB. Following graduation, Vanessa would like to work in a digital marketing position while exploring her love for entertainment and fashion.
