What do you want out of this internship?
I want my insatiable curiosity of artist management to be fulfilled with the help of Olivia Management, Erin, and her team. I want hands-on experience inside of the music industry that will aid in making me a better business professional in my future career endeavors.
What do you love to do? Hobbies? Activities?
I really enjoy travelling. In years past, I have spent a lot of time road tripping to live events (my favorite thing to do). Recently, I have found a love for vacationing on cruises. Aside from that, my guilty pleasure of a hobby is binge watching vlogs on YouTube.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?
Peanut butter… specifically, the Kirkland brand creamy organic peanut butter from Costco.

Why did you choose to intern here?
I chose to intern at Olivia Management because as a student of Erin’s, I was intrigued by her heart, passion, and outlook on Artist Management and business in general. I felt that the fluidity of hard work instilled in us would mesh well together in the respect of business.
What is your favorite part about Nashville?
My favorite part about Nashville is that it is a big city that doesn’t always feel like one. I am from a super small-town in Appalachia and feared culture shock when I moved here. I’m on year three in Nashville and am yet to feel lost in the city.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be a successful woman in the music industry who helps artists reach their goals, while pushing for changes and improvements of the industry as a whole.
