If it’s true that fortune favors the bold, then Kaitria is very fortunate indeed. Defining herself as a true Texan, she’s right at home in a pair of cowboy boots and a Tony Romo jersey, which contrasts well with her “Bring on the Bling” OPI nail polish.
Her pride in her home state is vast, but honestly, Texas just isn’t big enough to hold Kaitria and her ambition. After finishing her conquest of Dallas as a brand management intern for The Richards Group, where she worked with clients such as Orkin, Advance Auto Parts, HEB, Central Market and Amstel Light on competitive research and social media strategy, she’s turned her sights fully on MU. Having worked as MyEdu Corp.’s marketing intern last year, Kaitria is currently utilizing her many skills as the Student Union Programming Board’s director for big events (which include awards banquets and portions of Mizzou’s 100th anniversary Homecoming parade).
How does she do it? Lots and lots of coffee (particularly a Grande Pike Place Roast with room if she can get it). When not buzzed on caffeine and leading #Sharp as Account Executive, Kaitria hangs out with her two best friends, Paxton and Pippa, her cats.
