As Lea mentions below, we had the pleasure of meeting at Belmont's internship fair about a year ago. Timing is everything, however, and it's truly an exciting time for her to be interning with us! Lea is so eager to soak up every ounce of information she can about the craft of management and the inner workings of the biz, and we really love that about her. She's a go-getter, and we're excited to see what things we can accomplish together this summer. Read our Q&A to learn more!
What do you want to get out of this internship?
Overall, I want to improve my management skills and learn strategies to be the best for my artists. I also want to learn new systems for efficiency in my work, while improving my abilities in graphic design and excel.
What do you love to do? Hobbies? Activities?
I love to dance my butt off at shows, lift weights, and spend time in nature with my friends. I also enjoy going to the movies and playing with my cat.
If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?
I think I could live off of bananas!
Favorite musicians, artists, genres, equipment, shows you’ve been to...tell us anything you love about music.
I listen to the widest variety of music, which includes almost every genre (sorry metal, you didn’t make the cut). I have always loved the Beatles because I grew up listening to their CDs or my Dad playing their songs on guitar. Currently, some of my favorite bands/artists are Glass Animals, Childish Gambino, Paramore, and Whitney.
Why did you choose to intern here?
I chose to intern with Olivia Management because Maggie and Erin really stood out to me when I met them at Belmont University’s internship fair. I felt that I could learn a lot from them and truly do meaningful work.
What is your favorite part about Nashville?
My absolute favorite part about Nashville is that I am surrounded by music. I always have something to do and can go to a show whenever I please!
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I would like to continue managing artists, but one of my dreams is to be an A&R executive.
