You always hope for interns with similar music taste, but sometimes that's just not in the cards. You may have to sacrifice the simple comforts of mutual interest sometimes when hiring interns. Thankfully that's not the case with Kaley! During our interview we bonded over concerts we'd been to and albums we were digging, and that's pretty refreshing. Beyond that, Kaley's got some awesome experience as a PD at a student-run radio station in her hometown, and has a great attitude about accomplishing anything you might need her to. She's a smart cookie and a good hang, and we're eager to help her achieve whatever she wants to achieve with us this semester! Also, thank you, Kaley, for introducing us to Pepperoni Cheese Bread in your below blog with accompanying pictures.
My name is Kaley Ross and I am interning at Olivia Management to gain as much experience as I can about management, promotion, and running a business! I am also looking forward to making connections with people in this field with similar interests, like music supervision and going to live shows.

Watching movies at home or going to the theater
Drinking and trying new kinds of tea
Playing music with my band
If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?
Definitely Pepperoni Cheese Bread. If I'm not paying attention I can eat an entire box by myself.
What is your favorite part about Nashville?
My favorite part about Nashville is Woodland Street because it has my three favorite places to go, which are Five Points Pizza, The Soda Parlor, and High Garden Tea and Apothecary.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I for sure want to be the old lady down the street that the local kids think is a witch, but professionally, I would love to be either an Artist Manager or a Music Supervisor. I have not decided yet.
I chose to intern with Olive Management when I had Erin Anderson as my Entrepreneurship Professor. She is such a genuine person and I have always been interested in Artist Management. This seemed like the perfect learning opportunity for me and I cannot wait to get started!
